2010 R. Lopez de Heredia Vina Tondonia Reserva

$116.00

This dry red is a stable of the López de Heredia family. It is defined by its light texture and notes of vanilla, red cherry and dried berry.

Produced entirely from local grapes, (70% Tempranillo, 20% Garnacho, 5% Graciano and 5% Mazuelo).

Critic Review

The 2010 Viña Tondonia Reserva has all I expect from a Reserva from Tondonia, complexity, elegance and evolution, a developed nose with notes of forest floor and wild berries, herbs and flowers, a touch of iodine, brick dust and very fine, polished tannins. It has the seriousness and elegance of Tondonia. This is a blend of 70% Tempranillo, 20% Garnacho (they use the masculine form of the name of the grape) and 5% each Graciano and Mazuelo that fermented in the ancient oak vats from when the winery was created 144 years ago and matured in well-seasoned, American oak barrels for six years. It has 13% alcohol, a pH of 3.4 and 6.6 grams of acidity.
