2003 Lopez de Heredia "Viña Tondonia" Blanco Reserva Rioja

SKU #1298333 93 points Vinous

 (raised in American oak barrels for six years) Light bright yellow-gold. Dried citrus and pit fruits, white flowers, vanilla and a hint of beeswax on the highly perfumed nose. Concentrated but nervy as well, offering orange and pear nectar and toasted nut flavors; a gingery quality adds spiciness and lift. The floral note repeats emphatically on the impressively long, incisive finish, which features notes of chamomile and candied orange zest. (JR)  (5/2017)

93 points Wine Spectator

 This distinctive white is delicate yet expressive, with a lean texture carrying lively flavors of dried apple, quince, wildflower, tarragon and vanilla. Fresh acidity carries herbal and floral notes through the long finish. Drink now through 2023. (TM)  (9/2016)

92 points James Suckling

 Opulent nose showing ripe yellow apples and acacia with buttery and nutty undertones. Full-bodied and round. Lively finish. Waxy and very much a white Rioja. Drink now.  (12/2016)
