Viña Tondonia 1981 Rioja Gran Reserva

From the northern Spanish DOC of Rioja, this wine is a blend of Tempranillo and Garnacha with small amounts of Graciano and Mazuelo, matured in oak barrels for 10 years.

An interesting note is that when the term "Gran Reserva" was defined in the 1970s, the owner of Viña Tondonia, Don Pedro López Heredia, objected on the grounds that the new terms were too lenient and so refused to use the new classifications on his labels.

This bottle is from the excellent 1981 vintage.
