Vega Sicilia Valbuena 'No. 5' 2013

Valbuena is the baby brother of Vega Sicilia's top wine, Unico, and is made from the same vineyards and using the same winemaking methods. It differs by having a little Merlot rather than Cabernet Sauvignon and a selection process is used to determine the components for each wine. Components are classified early and blended before ageing (in much the same way as Penfolds do). Valbuena is always released in the 5th year after harvest, hence the Number 5 reference. A complex amalgam of both new and used barrels and large vats (up to 8,500L) made from French and American oak is used to produce various degrees of 'micro-maturity' in the winery - delivering a truly complex and intense final wine.
