Product Description
Details

This classic Spanish red wine from La Rioja is produced by the López de Heredia winery.

Apart from a violent hail storm in May, the 2009 vintage went on rather smoothly.  It was qualified as "Very Good" by the Rioja Regulatory Board.

The composition of Viña Bosconia Reserva includes mainly Tempranillo and Grenache, complemented with a small percentage of Graciano and Mazuela.

After a meticulous harvest, the wine was traditionally vinified and aged for 5 years in barrels with two manual rackings.

Then Viña Bosconia Reserva 2009 was clarified with fresh egg whites, bottled, and aged in the cellar for a further 5 years before its release.

We suggest that you gently decant this reserva red wine from Rioja a minimum of 30 minutes before drinking.

This wine has a remarkable ageing potential.

Appearance

Nose

Exquisite ripe red fruit, accompanied by floral notes, lavender and withered leaves. After a while, this blend of Tempranillo, Grenache, Graciano and Mazuela suggests many spicy aromas (vanilla, cinnamon clove) alongside leather, coffee, and tobacco over a deep balsamic background.

Palate

Flavorful and elegant, this wine from R. López de Heredia - Viña Tondonia has a nimble body and a classy, silky touch. The entry is mouth-filling. Overall, the palate is well-balanced and fresh, with nicely polished tannins. The final is deep and persistent.

Our personal opinion

Flavorful and seductive, Viña Bosconia Reserva 2009 pairs excellently with meat dishes and aged cheeses.

Still young, with a surprising vivacity. Already delicious, it will probably peak in 3-4 years.
