Lopez de Heredia, Vina Tondonia Rioja Reserva Tinto 2009
This is one of a handful of fine wines in the world that continues to over-deliver hugely on its price-point. The 2009 has a fine, elegant nose of fresh red cherry fruit and sweet spice. The wine has a lifted bouquet, perfumed with hints of pot pourri, raspberry tea and red liquorice. The acidity is astonishing one of Lopez de Heredia's trademarks yet it is the complexity and maturity of the flavours combined with this freshness that is truly inspirational.
