The king of Spanish wines, this elegant vintage expresses fine vanilla and brambly fruit on the nose framed on the palate with silky tannins and a streak of acidity that adds freshness. A wine to keep for twenty years or to enjoy straight away.

Valbuena is Vega Sicilia’s second wine, produced from younger vines and aged for a shorter period than Unico. It is released 5 years after vintage and has spent 7 months in large wooden vats, followed by 15 months in new barrels (50% French and 50% American oak), 3 months in semi-new barrels and another 6 months in large wooden vats.
Vega Sicilia, Spain’s ‘first growth’ and most prestigious wine estate, was founded in 1864 by Don Eloy Lecanda y Chaves, who arrived from Bordeaux with cuttings of local grapes and planted them, together with Spain’s signature grape Tinto Fino (Tempranillo). Vega Sicilia has founded its success on its meticulous wine-producing practices; in the vineyard it applies low yields, aided by green harvesting and a painstaking grape selection.
