Ultra sjælden vin. få flasker

The 2001 Viña Tondonia Gran Reserva is the follow-up of the 1995. There is a sense of harmony and elegance, of nuance and subtleness that wasn’t quite the same in the Bosconia, as comparing both wines is inevitable. They started picking the red grapes the 15th of October, and the last grapes were picked the 29th of October with good weather. The grapes ripened properly and thoroughly, and the wine has great balance for a long aging in bottle. This is 70% Tempranillo, 20% Garnacho and 5% each Graciano and Mazuelo that fermented in their 153-year-old oak vats with indigenous yeasts and matured in used barrels for 10 years. It has 13% alcohol, a pH of 3.4 and 6.4 grams of acidity (tartaric). The nose shows young (tasting it blind, you’d guess a 10-year old wine, not a 20-year-old wine!). It has a nose of sweet spices, underbrush and cigar ash, somewhat balsamic, bramble fruit with perfect ripeness, integrated and young but starting to show some tertiary complexity. The palate is velvety and medium-bodied, with fine-grained, chalky tannins denoting a limestone soil that brings finesse and texture and a sapid, tasty, almost salty finish. This is going to make a beautiful bottle of old Rioja in 30 years’ time! 25,000 bottles produced. It was bottled after being fined with egg whites in July 2012. 98 point Wine Advocate

Om Producenten

López de Heredia fra Haro i den bedste del af la Rioja Alta står som definitionen på old school, ikke bare i traditionsrige Rioja, men er faktisk enestående i hele vinverdenen. Kun meget lidt er ændret siden dannelsen i 1877. Alle druer i produktionen høstes fra egne marker - i dette tilfælde fra 'Cubillo', hvor alle vinstokke med et aldersgennemsnit på ca. 50 år står som bush vines, dvs. uden opbinding. Vinifikation og lagring foregår på amerikanske egefade fra eget bødkeri. Gæringsfadene er gamle, neutrale fade på 24.000 liter, mens lagringsfadene er de 225 liter, som DOCa'ens regler foreskriver. Kun en meget lille andel af fadene er nye - de fleste er ældgamle og dækket af vinsten, så fadene mest af alt fungerer som neutrale beholdere snarere end smagsgivere, hvilket også er nødvendigt hvis vinen skal have balance, når man lagrer så længe som López de Heredia. Filtrering anvendes ikke – her omstikkes et par gange årligt og før aftapning direkte fra fadet, klares der på gammeldags manér med æggehvider.
