Sold Out!

Viintage: 2009

Varietals: Viura (90%), Malvasía (10%)

Farming: Organic

2009 was a very warm year, and the 2009 Viña Tondonia Blanco Reserva, produced with Viura and 10% Malvasía Riojana from vines averaging 61 years of age, shows ripe and has more evolved aromas with honeyed notes, caramel, Earl Grey tea and a volatile whiff like it's more advanced. The palate feels more complete, with the textbook pungent flavors of fungus, diesel and wet chalk, and it's lighter than what I expected for a warm and dry year. This matured in well-seasoned, neutral American oak barrels for six years

Perfect with all kinds of fish, irrespective of their preparation; grilled seafood, well-seasoned white meat.
