2003 Lopez de Heredia "Viña Gravonia" Crianza Blanco Rioja

SKU #1120561 93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A beautiful example of a traditional white Rioja. Fresh and elegant, with harmonious, complex flavors of apple, mint, almond, beeswax and rose water. Delicate yet intense, balanced and long. *Highly Recommended* (TM) Inner quote mark (8/2013)

91 points Vinous

Outer quote mark (100% viura): Full gold. A perfumed, complex bouquet evokes dried pit fruits, honey and toasted nuts, with floral and beeswax accents adding complexity. Deep, fleshy and broad, offering chewy peach, pear skin and candied almond flavors lifted by gentle acidity. Closes with firm grip and very good persistence, leaving floral and honey notes behind. (JR) Inner quote mark (9/2012)

91 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark A mild and creamy 2003, this shows the heat of the vintage in a gentle peppery burn. There are cool cellar tones to keep it balanced, the wine’s flavors gaining freshness, building toward lemon custard and cham­omile scents as it opens with air. Inner quote mark (12/2012)

90 points John Gilman

Outer quote mark The Viña Gravonia Rioja Blanco from López de Heredia has been one of the best white wine values to be found in the market for several years now, but I note that the wine has been discovered and its price is creeping up a bit in recent times. The bottling is made up of one hundred percent Viura. The 2003 Viña Gravonia is another fine wine, offering up a deep and complex nose of pear, lemon and orange peel, coconut, white soils, and a nice touch of beeswax in the upper register. On the palate the wine is deep. Full-bodied, complex and beautifully balanced, with a fine core, fine secondary layers of complexity, bright acids and excellent length and grip on the focused and very classy finish. High class juice for its price tag. Inner quote mark (5/2014)
