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

Always so interesting, and complex. Silky but weighty, ripe with a touch of oxidation, with good acid to balance it all out

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.

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.

The 2003 'Vina Tondonia' Blanco Reserva is a tremendous effort from a challenging vintage. Needing more than 30 minutes in the decanter to be fully expressive, this wine opens to aromas of beeswax, smoky oak, Bartlett pear and slight suggestions of fresh white flowers. This leads to flavors reminiscent of nutmeg, cardamom, cantaloupe, beeswax and green papaya. There is an gorgeous overall range of flavors that persist with an oily texture through the finish. Drink 2019-2030- 93
