Viña Tondonia 2004 Rioja Reserva
This red wine from the northern Spanish DOC of Rioja is a blend of Tempranillo (75%) and Garnacho (15%), with Graciano and Mazuelo together contributing only 10%; matured in oak barrels for 6 years.
An interesting note is that when the term "Reserva" was defined in the 1970s, the owner of Viña Tondonia, Don Pedro López Heredia, objected and refused to use the new classifications on his labels. Viña Tondonia continue to label their wines on the principle of an "Estate Classification" as even their entry-level wine would naturally qualify for the legal term of "Gran Reserva".
This bottle is in excellent condition: label & foil/wax seal intact; cork/closure secure, no leakage.
