Lopez de Heredia 2010 Vina Gravonia Crianza Blanc
95pts Wine Advocate
2010 was a superb vintage in Rioja, and the white 2010 Viña Gravonia Blanco is simply stunning, the best of the three vintages I tasted together (2009, 2010 and 2011). This is from a cooler and very balanced year that is perfectly reflected in the wine. The wine is evolving slowly, with notes of lemon curd, dried yellow flowers, saffron and spices. The palate reveals real energy, great balance and a very tasty, almost salty finish. This has to be one of the best vintages for Viña Gravonia.
