Valdiniebla 2021, a new claret wine from Bodegas Jiménez-Landi
This year, Bodegas Jiménez-Landi has launched a new singular wine. It is a handcrafted claret made from Grenache ( 85%) and Muscat (15%). Unlike rosé wine, which is made with white grapes, our claret respects tradition by including red Grenache, the predominant grape variety in the winery's wines, in the winemaking process. The result is a very special wine that belongs to the Méntrida-Toledo PDO and is reminiscent of the claret wine that was formerly drunk in Spain with a slight Provençal touch.
The name chosen for our claret is Valdiniebla, which like all the wines of Bodegas Jiménez-Landi takes its name from a place in the town of Méntrida, in the north of the province of Toledo and in the foothills of the Sierra de Gredos .
For the first vintage of Valdiniebla, the 2021 vintage, 2,261 bottles have been produced after aging for 8 months in French oak barrels and foudres. The bottling has been done by gravity as most of the winery's wines and all the bottles have been sealed by hand.
Valdiniebla joins the range of singular wines of limited productions that the winery launched for the first time in 2021. Artisan wines with a high oenological value that our winemaker José B. Jiménez-Landi produces with the highest quality standards and that are part of the winery's R&D.
