Product Description
Details

The R. López de Heredia-Viña Tondonia winery presents the new vintage of Viña Gravonia, a remarkable Spanish white wine from La Rioja.

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 2011 was clarified with egg whites, bottled unfiltered and aged for a further 3 years in the cellar.

This Crianza white wine has a great ageing potential.

18,867 bottles produced.

Appearance

The white wine Viña Gravonia has a golden colour with some amber tinges.

Nose

This excellent white wine made from Viura is remarkably complex and elegant. Viña Gravonia Crianza suggests aromas of dry fruit, aromatich herbs, some lactic nuances and a panoply of spices, white flowers, honey, royal jelly and flowers.

Palate

Silky, sophisticated and deep, this Crianza white wine by the Viña Tondonia winery has a fabulous palate. 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 2011 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.

Gravonia!!
Value
This wine simply puts to shame dozens of Burgundies premier crus - and some GCs. Delicate, fresh, honeyed, very long on the palate.
