2008 López de Heredia "Viña Tondonia" Reserva Rioja
Prestigious and elegant wines from López de Heredia, nothing other than classic and Iconic. The nose is fresh and engaging, with a defined herbal twist. Starting to show the complexity of the aged wines that are sometimes released still to young when they are released 10+ years from the vintage!
The palate is medium-bodied, with lightness and depth, and extra freshness - all that is needed for a long development in bottle. There are notes of maple syrup, smoke, licorice and crisp fruit. Finishing with an austere, crunchy crescendo - showcasing the chalkiness of the soils.
