Although Ribera del Duero is now well established in international markets, one forgets how comparatively new the DO is – the Valduero estate, established in 1984, was only the sixth in the appellation at the time! During the intervening 25 years, they have built up an impressive resume as a winery offering quality and value from grapes sourced from their 200 hectares of bush-trained, low yielding vineyards. The sisters Yolanda and Caroline García, daughters of founder Gregorio García Alvarez, run an impressive operation, that goes from strength to strength.
Wine Spectator – “This firm white shows a savory character, offering fresh herb, blanched almond and briny notes that mingle over crisp acidity. The flavors are reserved, but this remains refreshing, with good depth. Drink now through 2021. 4,879 cases made.” (90 Pts)
