Always a stunner. So much acidity on this vintage! Oxidative, full bodied and salty with lots of citrus, orange peel, and almond with a long, nutty finish. This would kill with crab cakes. Plenty of time ahead of it.

Deep golden color. White mushroom, beeswax, dill weed, stewed apple. Nice acidity and layers of flavors. Very special

One of the rare white wines you wonder if you're drinking it too early even though it's thirteen years old. Serve this at room temperature, embrace the oxidation, and drink with hard cheese.

In a great place. Herby/spicy/fruity interplay. Persistent.

So very interesting. The color is like honey, so it almost looks more like rosé. The nose is like a cross between Riesling and sherry. Mouth is creamy, but still with an acidic bite on the end. Dry, but rich. I’ve never had white Rioja, but it obviously shares longevity with its red cousin, because even at 16 years old this wine feels like a baby.

Great stuff. Love the waxy, unctuous texture. Good acidity. Subtle tropical fruit, honey, with a touch of marcona almond and spice on the nose

What a great benchmark for my first White Rioja. This special wine has notes of fleshy ripe cantaloupe, jasmine and anise. Balanced with the yeasty and oxidative almost sherry like quality. I could drink this on a cold winter evening or a bright summer days. It is balanced, elegant and the finish is long and complex.

Tondonia Blanco & Radiohead hits the high highs. Maximum enjoyment happening here.

Burnt race car yellow. Nose oxidative and sweet. Mouth crisp, savoury, has a dried mushroom umami note in the middle. Slight acid. Finishes cold.
