Elegant and lovely for an entry level with 20+ years of age. 1996 vintage

So fresh and nutty with hints of honeysuckle and lovely acidity.

100% Viura, aged 4yrs and bottled in 2008. Fresh fruit and nutty, silky texture and overall delicious.

Fooook meee! Do love #Tondonia Viña Gravonia 05' blanco #crianza it's the nuts, it smells of nuts and stewed apples and almonds & has a liquid mineral core with waxy lemon, golden syrup, Mr. Tom bars (remember them?), also smells of honey, acacia, toffee popcorn & lemon oil. Has a wonderfully fat palate with a chewy nuttiness along with rich lemon rind, peach & apricots (specially the skins), juicy, long and complex finish. Works great with fish (tonight with smoked haddock in a cheddar & chive sauce, butter braised samphire, edamame & butter bean salad with giant couscous n feta)

Sour honey, dried dill, quince, honeycomb, creme fraiche, lemon peel. Not as haunting as old tondonia, but always solid.
