This wine is made from a rare, white-berried
variation of Tempranillo, the primary grape
responsible for Rioja’s famous reds.
What You Need To Know
Although the Martínez Bujanda
family have been important grape growers in Rioja for more than
a century, they didn’t build their own winery and create Bodegas
Valdemar until 1982. Since then, they’ve developed a reputation
for quality and for an experimental streak. They’re a leader
in reviving Rioja’s ancient, native grapes and are championing the
newest of the region’s indigenous varieties, Tempranillo Blanco.
Discovered growing wild in a Rioja vineyard in 1988, this mutation
of red Tempranillo yields whites with alluring tropical, citrus
and floral flavors and terrific freshness and structure. Bodegas
Valdemar was one of the first two estates to sell the wine
commercially in the mid-2000s. It ages its Tempranillo Blanco
in French oak barrels for a year, which gives this bottling
a light creaminess.
