Valbuena unveils a direct and comprehensible vision of the greatness of its "terroir," influenced directly by each year's conditions. Its production remains unaltered to allow the climatic factors of each year to distinguish between the different harvests. Fermentation occurs at controlled temperatures in stainless steel tanks using native yeast. Malolactic fermentation also takes place in stainless steel. After fermentation, the wine undergoes aging, both in wood and bottle, for five years, hence its name Valbuena 5 Year. The process involves the use of French and American oak, 225-liter barrels, both new and used, and 20,000-liter wooden vats. It's a lengthy and complex process that yields a remarkable wine.
