Robert Parker (RP) : 93 Points (2005)

The 2005 Viña Tondonia Reserva is a blend of 70% Tempranillo, 20% Garnacho, 5% Graciano and 5% Mazuelo from their vineyards in the meander of the Ebro River, where they have some 100 hectares of vineyards. The wine fermented in the original oak vats that are now some 140 years of age. There is no temperature control and malolactic was also in the vat. The wine was transferred to oak barrels where it slowly matured in their deep, humid caves for no less than six years. After this, it was bottled unfiltered after being fined with egg whites. I think the quality gap between the Reserva and Gran Reserva has been getting smaller since the 2001 vintage and this 2005 is nothing short of exceptional. It’s clean and complex, with more freshness. The wine is very spicy and with a palate that feels very balanced, livelier than in the past. It has a long finish where the flavors are clean. Easy to drink and very pleasurable. Some 250,000 bottles were produced in 2005.”

La Rioja är en av Spaniens mest kända vinregioner och uppdelad i tre zoner: Rioja Alta, Rioja Oriental och Rioja Alavesa. Vinerna är mestadels röda, gjorda av bärdoftande druvor som Garnacha och Tempranillo och vingårdarna löper längs Ebroflodens utkanter, som sträcker sig runt 100 kilometer.
