Tempranillo & Garnacha
Lopez de Heredia, Vina Tondonia, 2001
Rioja, Spain

Lopez de Heredia is one of the most fascinating wine producers in the world. It is an icon amongst all wineries, known for their long ageing periods and natural winemaking.

They still ferment the wine in oak vats that were built over 100 years ago, using natural yeasts. Instead of using computers to control the fermentation temperature they simply open the cellar doors at night. They make their own barrels and mature the wine for longer than almost any winery in the world, which is often 8 years in barrel before release.

Tempranillo is the classic grape of Rioja and gives flavors of strawberry and notes of soft leather. Garnacha provides spice and body, and soft smooth tannins. This wine is a model of complexity, elegance and delicacy. We hope you enjoy the complex and unusual flavors.

Food and wine pairing: The classic match is lamb, but the wine also complements beef and hard cheeses.
