Description

Viña Tondonia Rerseva Blanco is blend of 2 different grapes varieties: Malvasía and Viura, although the latter clearly dominates. Both varieties are native to the region, which is a basic condition of the winery. The grapes used are taken from the Viña Tondonia estate, a majestic vineyard of 100 hectares that was planted over one hundred years ago in 1913 on the right banks of the river Ebro. The harvest is carried out manually and with care, as to avoid that the grapes breaking, rupturing or spontaneously fermenting prior to arriving at the winery. In regards to the production of this wine, fermentation takes place in small oak vats using native yeasts from the vines for 7 days. Fermentation takes place without the skins, to avoid excessive colouration. After the various phases of the winemaking process have been carried out, Viña Tondonia Reserva Blanco is aged for 6 years in 225litre capacity Bordeaux oak barrels, made at the winery. While the wine is ageing, it is racked twice a year. 

Very elegant and complex nose. Hints of honey and dried apricots. Citrus. Lemon, orange compote. Notes of hazelnuts on a very delicate wooden background. Satiny, very evolved. With a great acidity that promises a long life
