Lopez de Heredia Vina Tondonia Gran Reserva 1994

Winemaker's Notes:

"Recorded in the Rioja as an EXCELLENT vintage. Growth cycle: After an unusual winter with above-average temperatures and little rainfall which accelerated the growth cycle, April became the key month for this vintage, with a cold wave and frosts that affected between 10% and 30% of buds and slowed down growth. Isolated storms didn't affected Viña Tondonia and we harvested healthy grapes. We started the harvest the 12th of October and finished the 25th. The grapes arrived at the bodega in a perfect state of health and the ideal degree of ripeness to make great wines: perfect level of alcohol content, colour and total acidity levels. Fermentations were perfect and, the wines showed good colour and extract, ideally suited to make Gran Reservas like this one. Once the vinification process was completed, the wines showed very favourable parameters, such as good colour and extract, an exquisite palate, and quite acceptable alcohol content, pH and acidity. These indicators pointed to a promising future." -Winery

One of my favorite producers anywhere, one of my favorite wines from this producer (beat only by the white Tondonia gran reserva), and an excellent vintage. What's not to love.
