An excellent vintage of Lopez de Heredia's Viña Tondonia White Reserva, which spends a lengthy time waiting patently for its chance to greet you with bundles of honey, apricot and oak notes. These top notch Spanish wines are made with Viura and Malvasía grapes, all harvested from the company's own vineyards. You can't go wrong if you pair this stuff with seafood.
95 Points, Luis Gutierrez, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"One of two vintages I tasted of the white from the Viña Tondonia, the 2006 Viña Tondonia Blanco Reserva is from a warm and ripe year, but the wine doesn't show heat. It feels a little riper than the 2007 I tasted next to it. It has more depth and complexity than the Gravonia, with the aromatic profile closer to a white Hermitage than any other white I can think of. The palate is bone dry, with some austerity and pungent flavors, where the flavors include lemon peel, beeswax, herbal tea and dry hay. 10,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in May 2015."
