Description Valdemar is run by the Martínez Bujanda clan - a Riojan dynasty that stretches back five generations. Proprietor Jesús Martínez Bujanda took parcels of his finest, strawberry-scented Tempranillo and added Graciano and Mazuelo (for extra aromatic complexity and freshness), before tucking it away in expensive oak barrels for over two years. The result is a remarkable Gran Reserva with subtle aromas of jewel-like black fruits, lifted by elegant floral and vanilla notes, plus an intense core of ripe raspberry and blackberry with a long toasty oak finish. Jesús has sent us precious few cases of this luxurious gem - not much was made in fact - so best to take stock of a few bottles and reserve for a special occasion. Glorious with rack of lamb.
