An evolved nose greets the nose with seaweed and iodine tones to the fore. There is a nice seared cherry tone but the nose is more about the musky tones of men's cologne, wood spice and coriander notes, and dusty gravel. In the mouth there remains perfectly ripe fruit that offers a fine bitter/sweet contrast with the slightly candied tart red cherry and wild raspberry notes playing off a medicinal, slightly astringent aspect of the wine. Lacks a bit of complexity but the lively fresh core of meaty fruity makes up for a bit of that. 91pts

The nose initially carries a blast of fennel, then follows with some dried fruits, candied and intense but not sweet. There are fleeting moments of lanolin, oyster shell and roasted peach skin. Overall a wine with complex composition and substantial palate.

A baby of a wine just emerged from the cellar. Almost indescribable complexity of aroma and amazing finesse on the palate. One of the truly great white wines of the world.

Lopez de Heredia is a family-run business, now taken over by two strong-willed sisters. Tondonia is a vineyard on the Douro River, producing wines with high acidity that help them to age, This wine shows red fruit, mushroom, and a long silky finish.

Deep gold in color, complex aromas of autumn, almonds, and royal jelly. The ultimate in finesse from a white wine made for long-term aging using methods honed to perfection during the 19th century.

Vi¤a Tondonia whites are of a special breed. Made from 100% Viura, this wine has a bouquet of honey, walnuts, orange peel, and eastern spices. Amazing acidity makes this a great pairing with a variety of food, including scrambled eggs!
