Vina Gravonia White Rioja Crianza Bodega Lopez Heredia – 2009
Please note that we only receive very limited quantities of this wine so it can only be sold in conjunction with Vina Tondonia Reserva Red Rioja.
“I had three vintages of the white Viña Gravonia to taste, which is exceptional because production has been really short these last few years, and they sell out very quickly. The oldest of the three is the 2009 Viña Gravonia Blanco, from a very old vineyard (91 years old), and it fermented in ancient oak vats with indigenous yeasts and matured in barrel for four years. 2009 was a warm and ripe vintage, and the wine has a fully developed nose, with notes of diesel, honey and beeswax, chamomile tea and pollen. But it’s still fresh and has the chalky texture and austerity so characteristic of the Gravonia. 13,100 bottles produced. It was bottled in November 2016.” 93/100pts The Wine Advocate
