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

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.

Chenin-y, Fino Sherryish profile. I'm a fan.

Another R. Lopez gem that has been aged for 11 years. Slight oxidation on the color, however the aromatics and taste were lovely. Dried orange fruit (apricot and mango), heavy white floral with a hint of butterscotch. I want a few bottles for my collection
