Vina Tondonia Blanco, Rioja Reserva 2006, Spain

Grape Varieties: Viura & Malvasia

 

Story behind the label:

This famous producer, one of the most traditional in Spain, was founded in Rioja in 1877. Its wines, white as well as red, are given prolonged ageing in casks and released later than most modern Riojas. They are renowned for their ageability, and the slight oxidation inherent in the ageing process gives the wines remarkable stability and complexity.

Wine  behind the label:

A compact wine with incredible complexity and very racy, aromas of dried citrus peel, baked apples, roast nuts and hints of mushroom give us a wine that creates lasting memories. Outstanding value for money considering this wine was made in the first decade of this century.

 

Note: sustainable

Alcohol (ABV): 12.5 %
