R. López de Heredia Viña Tondonia Rioja Viña Tondonia Gran Reserva Pre-Arrival 1985

Winemaker's Notes:

94 points Stephen Tanzer (IWC): Pale orange-red color, greeny-gold at the rim. Knockout ethereal nose combines strawberry, minerals, maple syrup, black toffee, truffle and autumn leaves. Juicy, pungent, precise and minerally; a Chambolle style of Rioja, weightless in the best possible way. Dry, brisk and fresh, with penetrating cherry fruit. This will get your salivary glands working. Finishes bright, subtle and long, with easygoing, perfectly integrated tannins and a whiplash of flavor. (Jul/Aug 2003)
