Tasting Notes

"The red flagship 2006 Viña Tondonia Reserva was inspired by the vineyards of the Médoc but produced with local grapes, 70% Tempranillo, 20% Garnacho, 5% Graciano and 5% Mazuelo, which achieved 13% alcohol in 2006. It always matures in used American oak barriques for some six years. The oldest of all the reds I tasted, it was also the one with more freshness, which speaks to the quality of the vineyard."

95 points - Luis Gutierrez, Wine Advocate, Feb 2018

"Very close in quality to the superlative 2005 (an exceptional vintage in Rioja), this is a wonderfully traditional cuvée of Tempranillo with 20% Garnacha and 5% each of Graciano and Mazuelo. Silky, balanced, fine and mature with a background whisper of old oak, umami, forest floor and wild strawberry flavours and a chalky freshness that cleans the palate."

95 points / Rioja Reserva of the Year - Tim Atkin MW, Rioja Report 2018

The Producer

Lopez de Heredia

For 145 years, López de Heredia has stood as one of the most significant and highly sought-after producers in the Rioja region. They possess all 170 hectares of the vineyards they cultivate, with some vines dating back a century, and have maintained a tradition of working without chemical intervention for generations. The sustainability practices embraced by younger producers today have been integral to López de Heredia's production since its inception.

What sets these wines apart, contributing significantly to their widespread demand, is the extensive aging process before they are released. To provide context, the legal requirement for a Gran Reserva Rioja dictates a minimum aging period of two years in barrels and two years in bottles (a total of four years at least). López de Heredia, however, unveils their Viña Tondonia Gran Reserva Rioja after an impressive twenty years. Therefore, the 2001 vintage we present here represents their latest Gran Reserva release and the first since 1996. Enjoying these wines is a truly unique experience, as they encapsulate bottled history in every sip.
