White Wine Viña Gravonia 2010
A single varietal Viura (Macabeo), it is made from vineyards coming from a single estate with an average age of 45 years.
The grapes of this white wine from La Rioja were meticulously harvested, destemmed and fermented in big oak vats.
After that, it was aged in oak barrels for 4 years-with two yearly rackings.
Finally, Viña Gravonia 2010 was clarified with egg whites, bottled unfiltered and aged for a further 5 years in the cellar.
Remarkable ageing potential. Drink this Crianza white wine through 2030.
Gently aerate it a minimum of 30 minutes before drinking.
The white wine Viña Gravonia has a golden colour with some amber tinges.
This excellent white wine made from Viura is remarkably complex and elegant. Remembrances of dry fruit, aromatich herbs, some lactic nuances and a panoply of spices, white flowers, honey, royal jelly and flowers.
Silky, sophisticated and deep, this Crianza white wine by the Viña Tondonia winery is reminiscent of bone fruit, juicy and fresh, underbrush, bitter herbs, citrus, jasmine... A nice complexity. Very good acidity and a very long finish with some mineral and earthy suggestions.
|Our personal opinion||
Elegant, original and superbly crafted, Viña Gravonia 2010 is a first class Rioja white wine by legendary Bodega López Heredia. We suggest that you keep one or two bottles in your home cellar to witness its spectacular evolution.
