2008 Viña Tondonia Reserva

López de Heredia

£138 per six bottles in bond pre-arrival at Seckford*

“The  2008  Tinto  Reserva  announces itself  with  dense  notes  of  macerated strawberries  on  the nose,  followed seamlessly  by  those oh-so-glorious “Tondonia”  notes  of  autumn  bonfires  and vanilla  that  make  you  feel  perfectly at  home.  However,  the  2008’s  aromas  move seamlessly  into  something much  more  delicate,  verging  even  towards  ethereal  (for  Rioja)  with  layers reminiscent  of  dried cranberries.  Simply  put,  this is warm,  delicious,  elegant  yet  exhilarating  Tondonia,  more in  line  with  the  cool  2006  than  other  recent  vintages.  It  is so  full  of  life  and energy  but  displays that  wonderful,  counterbalancing  richness that  just makes  you  want  to  relax  and  sink  on  to the  sofa  with  it;  it  is  a  wine  worthy  of any cellar.  Drink  2022-2040. ” Catriona  Felstead  MW


The Vintage: 2008 was rated a "very good" vintage in Rioja. Plenty of rain in the spring was followed by a mild and dry summer, resulting in good vine growth and healthy grapes. The high quality of the fruit was aided by the excellent weather conditions in the run-up to harvest which led to near-perfect berries and wonderfully balanced flavours in the grapes.
