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.
