Rioja Gran Reserva Rosado, Vina Tondonia, R. López de Heredia Viña Tondonia 2011

Tasting Notes

2011 is a warmer and riper year in Rioja than 2010, which was a superb vintage, and the 2011 Viña Tondonia Rosado Gran Reserva suffers when tasted next to the 2010. It has candied fruit and a much riper profile but with the classical old oak and mushroom aromas of Tondonia. The color is less bright than the 2010, and there are already some brick-going-to-brown tones. There is some lightness in the palate with moderate acidity and refreshing notes of watermelon and rose petals. 12,000 bottles were filled in April 2017. 2020-2028
