Talking About the Wines:
-Vinous Media "Spain's New Releases, Part 2: Triumphs and Travails " May ’17 gave 93 points to 2003 Viña Tondonia Reserva White."…Light bright yellow-gold. Dried citrus and pit fruits, white flowers, vanilla and a hint of beeswax on the highly perfumed nose. Concentrated but nervy as well, offering orange and pear nectar and toasted nut flavors; a gingery quality adds spiciness and lift. The floral note repeats emphatically on the impressively long, incisive finish, which features notes of chamomile and candied orange zest.”
-Wine Spectatr Magazine, Sept '16 gave 93 points to 2003 Viña Tondonia Reserva white. "This distinctive white is delicate yet expressive, with a lean texture carrying lively flavors of dried apple, quince, wildflower, tarragon and vanilla. Fresh acidity carries herbal and floral notes through the long finish."
-Wine Spectator Magazine, Sept '15 gave 91 points to 2000 Viña Tondonia Reserva white. "This firm white is rich in traditional character, with notes of dried apple, green tea, lanolin, dried pineapple and tarragon.
