Lopez de Heredia - Vina Tondonia Reserva Blanco 1996White Wine
A classic example of what great white Rioja should be.
Dark golden in colour with notes of nuts, cream and sherriness on the nose.
On the palate those same notes are magnified and enhanced by fat mature fruit that is still supremely well balanced. Nutty, concentrated, creamy yet fresh.
A long, soft, warming finish with flavours that go on and on and on.
