Viña Tondonia Red Gran Reserva 1995

Tondonia Gran Reserva Tinto
Characteristics of the vintage:
Year of a very early maturation. Since March the vineyards showed a month in advance in comparison with any other normal year in Rioja. There were plenty of buds and a very good pollination. We had an early harvest as well starting in our House starting with the red grapes in October 9th. The sun shinned without stopping for two weeks which give us a perfect maturation even obtaining average alcohol contains of 13% Vol. all over Rioja Alta, which it was unusual at that time. We had plenty of grapes in Rioja in general as well as in our House but also with a very good quality. This wine has developed fantastically having plenty of vocation for more bottle ageing.
