1994 Viña Tondonia Tinto Gran Reserva, Bodegas R. López de Heredia

Sold Out

1994 was one of the greatest post-war Rioja vintages, its mild spring and extended growing season ideal for Gran Reservas in particular. It should come as no surprise, therefore, that the Tondonia Gran Reserva is a little special… The blend is 75% Tempranilo and 15% Garnacha with the balance shared equally between Graciano and Mazuelo, aged in American barrel for nearly ten years with racking taking place twice a year. The ageing potential for this wine is extraordinary; at the moment the colour is dense and rich and the aromatics combine gentle vanillin with dried fruit and hints of spice.
