1993 Lopez de Heredia "Viña Tondonia" Blanco Reserva Rioja

SKU #1073860 93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark (90% viura and 10% malvasia): Light, bright gold. High-pitched aromas of lemon rind and pear are given depth by smoky lees and honey nuances. Rich and full but almost shockingly dry, offering sappy orchard fruit and bitter citrus flavors and a touch of chamomile. A bright mineral quality adds bite to the very long, smoky finish. This is showing uncanny energy for its age. Inner quote mark (10/2011)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 1993 Vina Tondonia Blanco Reserva, aged for six years in barrel, has a clear hue with green tints in the glass. The oxidative element is noticeable in the 1993, with perfumed aromas of lanolin, honey and green olives. The palate has a touch of fresh ginger on the entry, hints of mushroom on the back palate with a delicate, nuanced finish. This is very refined but deserves several more years aging. Drink 2018-2030. Inner quote mark (8/2012)

K&L Notes

Natural gold in color, this unique wine offers a developed and a smooth, round and fine impression in the mouth. Viura (90%), Malvasía (10%), all from the Tondonia vineyard. Perfect with all kinds of fish, irrespective of their preparation; grilled seafood and well-seasoned white meat.
