product Details

Viña Tondonia 1983 Rioja Reserva

This red wine from the northern Spanish DOC of Rioja is a blend of Tempranillo (75%), Garnacho (15%), Graciano and Mazuelo together contributing only 10%, aged 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.  Hence the term "Reserva" does not feature on this wine's label, although requirements for such have been - not only met, but - exceeded.

This bottle is in excellent condition: label & foil/wax seal intact; cork/closure secure, no leakage.

Important Notice

We would recommend viewing/close inspection prior to placing any bids. If this is not an option and you have questions beyond the offered description and images, please contact us for a more in-depth condition report. Otherwise lots will be sold as seen in the images.

Please note: Due to the various ages of bottles and their seals, condition of liquid is at the buyer's discretion and no claim can be lodged against failure/leakage in transit.
