2012 Now Finished: VINA GRAVONIA BLANCO, López de Heredia. Rioja, Spain

Bin:  326

Alcohol percentage:  12.5%

Area:

Rioja – the one area is responsible for 70% of Spanish exports to the UK. Almost all of that is red, however

Grape variety:

100% Viura

Producer:

López de Heredia are the most traditional producer in Rioja, perhaps in Spain. This white is aged for FOUR YEARS in American oak barrels…

Maturity potential:

The wine is fully mature – it has to be after that long in barrel – but will live for ever, changing little

Old Bridge rating:

This long-aged style is too Sherry-ish for many palates, but remains one of the idiosyncratic wonders of the wine world. Assertively dry with under-stated richness, its an austere but emphatically original white.

Just 15 bottles in stock…

Press review:

Decanter Magazine “Must Try White”, September 2015 – “Layered and complex with notes of herbs and quince, this wine is full of personality. The nuttiness on the palate is balanced by fresh acidity and complemented by jasmine. It’s made in an oxidative style, but don’t be put off – it’s a profound white that’s perfect for jamon”.
