So heavy on that 10 Viura but maderized beautiful. Rosy, marzipan, lavender and yet wet earth. Triumphant. Hot as fuck.

The 2009 ‘Gran Reserva’ Rose by Vina Tondonia is an impressive blend of 60% Garnacho with 30% Tempranillo and 10% Viura. This beautiful Rose wine was aged for four years in American oak and another five years in the bottle. On the nose this opens with bright red fruits with blood orange and wild mushroom that are wrapped around toasty oak in the glass. The palate is silky smooth, revealing a seductive texture and a bright minerality with a brilliant beam of salinity. Remarkably light on its feet, this ‘Gran Reserva’ unveils beautiful red fruits and suggestions of kumquat and teaberry with peat moss undertones. Highly novel and complex, simply put, there is nothing like this wine. While delightful now this will age gracefully for at least another decade. Drink 2019-2029- 94

Unicorn rosé for the win. Tastes a little more ripe and primary than my previous experiences with this wine
