Production: This Rosé has the privilege to be the first and so far, the only Gran Reserva Rosé wine elaborated under the DOC Rioja, it comes on the market only on those exceptional vintages, the last one was in 2000. A quite complex rose, this gastronomic wine has been made from a mixture of white and red grapes varieties which have fermented and macerated together. It has spent 4 years in used American oak barrels, raked twice a year and fined with egg-whites, bottled unfiltered to spend another 6 years in Vats and bottle before its release.
The family owned bodega López Heredia, one of Rioja’s oldest and most traditional establishments, was founded in 1913 by Rafael López de Heredia, three generation later the family Lopez de Heredia continue to devote themselves to producing exceptional and unique wines. Located in the heart of the Rioja Alta region, Viña Tondonia is a beautiful vineyard and one of the most spectacular in Haro, of over 100 ha. situated in a shell- like depression on the right bank of the river Ebro, the soil is alluvial clay with a high proportion of limestone. The grapes from Viña Tondonia are always used in making their highest quality wine.
Tasting Notes: Good complexity and volume, dried flower, spicy notes and nutty flavors. Good acidity and freshness marked by a long and persistent finish.
Notes: Will drink well through 2030.
