Lopez de Heredia 'Vina Tondonia' Rioja Tinto Reserva 2007


"Following the appreciation of the 2007 vintage from María José López de Heredia, the red 2007 Viña Tondonia Reserva is showing great, revealing unusual finesse and elegance. The nose is a little reticent but nuanced and complex, a little shy rather than explosive. The palate is medium-bodied, and the tannins are very refined. This has to be one of the finest vintages of Viña Tondonia Reserva of recent years. 200,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in November 2015." 96 pts Luis Gutierrez Wine Advocate June 2019

The 2007 has a fine, elegant nose of fresh red cherry fruit and sweet spice. The wine has a lifted bouquet, perfumed with exotic hints of pot pourri, raspberry tea and red liquorice. The depths of the bouquet are seriously impressive; you could mull over these aromas for hours. When you do feel inclined to broach the palate, it is immediately apparent that this is a wine with a huge future ahead of it. The acidity is astonishing – it is one of López de Heredia’s trademark characteristics – yet it is the complexity and maturity of the flavours, combined with this freshness, that is truly inspirational. And then there is the finish: such an enduring, mouthcoating, intense finish. The concentration is hugely impressive, leaving a timeless, scented-yet-savoury impression in the mouth, long after the last sip. Whilst this has the mature characteristics to enjoy now, the acidity and fine, but present, tannins suggest that this will last for decades to come.
