2008 R. Lopez de Heredia Viña Tondonia Reserva, Rioja
SKU: B354 / P4/ 1025Regular price $59.95
Founded in the late 1800’s by D. Rafael López de Heredia y Landeta, the estate is a rarity in Rioja, using only estate bottled fruit from their prized vineyards (Tondonia, Cubillo, Bosconia and Zaconia). Following a tradition, the wines are released at least 5-10 years after harvest. In average, vines are 45 years old, organically farmed, creating wines that exhibit great terroir. Viña Tondonia, situated on the right bank of the river Ebro, is usually a blend of Tempranillo(70-80%), Garnacha(10-15%), and the remainder is split between Mazuelo and Graciano.
