Details

The legendary winery R. López de Heredia-Viña Tondonia presents the new vintage of Viña Gravonia, a Spanish Crianza white wine.

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, Viña Gravonia 2008 was aged in oak barrels for 4 years-with two yearly rackings.

Finally, the wine was clarified with egg whites, bottled unfiltered and aged for a further 5 years in the cellar.

13,000 bottles were produced of this Crianza white wine from La Rioja. Remarkable ageing potential. Drink until 2028.

Gently decant it a minimum of 30 minutes before drinking.

 

 

Additional Information

Appearance

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

 

Nose

This Crianza white wine from Rioja 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.

 

Palate

Silky, sophisticated and deep, this varietal Viura by López de Heredia-Viña Tondonia brings remembrances 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 2008 is a first class Crianza white wine by Bodega López Heredia. We suggest that you keep one or two bottles in your home cellar to witness its spectacular evolution.

  1. Gravonia!! review by Allan simonson on 9/18/2017

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