‘This is as complex and savory as the rest of the Viña Tondonia wines, but also shows a tad more depth, with a hint of black plum and blue fruit on top of the orange rind, iron, tobacco and earthy spices. Expect some cedar and truffle to develop in the future. Juicy, zesty and tight, with a dusty tannins and bright berry fruit on the medium-to full-bodied palate.’ – James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com, 97/100

‘The 2010 Viña Tondonia Reserva has all I expect from a Reserva from Tondonia, complexity, elegance and evolution, a developed nose with notes of forest floor and wild berries, herbs and flowers, a touch of iodine, brick dust and very fine, polished tannins. It has the seriousness and elegance of Tondonia. This is a blend of 70% Tempranillo, 20% Garnacho (they use the masculine form of the name of the grape) and 5% each Graciano and Mazuelo that fermented in the ancient oak vats from when the winery was created 144 years ago and matured in well-seasoned, American oak barrels for six years. It has 13% alcohol, a pH of 3.4 and 6.6 grams of acidity. 2022-2034’ – Luis Gutiérrez, Wine Advocate, 96/100

Producer information López de Heredia is Spain's poster child for classic, traditional Rioja and is one of the wine world's great treasures. The wines of López de Heredia are oxidative, finely elegant and have a depth of umami flavour that make them so food-friendly. 'The wines are now the height of fashion… and ultimate expression of the region of La Rioja Alta', writes Decanter. Now in its fourth generation, López de Heredia have produced their wines in the same patient way since 1877. 'To capture the essence of Rioja one can’t change with every trend. For us, tradition and conviction are life-long attitudes.' – Maria López Heredia
