Lopez de Heredia Tondonia 2007
Lopez de Heredia are one of our favourite producers in the whole world. They are now the last producer of ‘proper’ traditional Rioja, aged for many years in old oak barrels before release. These are wines that can age for many decades and still taste fresh! We tried a 1954 vintage not long ago and it blew our socks off!
If you’re expecting modern, fruit-bomb Rioja you might get a surprise here. Instead, this is medium bodied and delicate with notes of pepper and spice accompanying bright red fruit. Just lovely.
