Review:

Tondonia whites are much more than classics. They are icons of tradition, examples of honesty and wines which exude knowledge, craftsmanship and authenticity. They are wines with principles and wines without an end; their extraordinary acidity makes them virtually eternal. They are extremely pleasant, elegant and profound, and wines you could never tire of drinking.

If the Gran Reserva is perhaps out of many people's reach, the Blanco Reserva is a wine that you should try at least once in your life, and one to always have in the cellar if possible; it is a particularly 'gastronomic' wine, relating well to food, perfect for fish and fried or grilled shellfish, cheeses such as Brie, Parmesan and Manchego, risottos, seafood rice dishes, fish stews, lobster, pasta dishes with truffles, mushrooms, asparagus, potatoes with cod or monkfish, scrambled eggs with wild mushrooms or fresh garlic, white tuna with tomato or onion... This is a white but at heart a red, much more vinous than fruit-driven, ideal for serving with food.

The honesty of a Tondonia white becomes clear starting with the bottle: transparent. The cork is superb; this wine can be kept for years and years, with no expiry date. In the glass, a vivid bright gold, eternally young. On the nose... give it some time; after maturing for six years in barrel and resting for a long time in bottle, it needs to breathe; if you can, decant it. Describing it is difficult because its aromatic palette is very well integrated. We can discover aromas of very ripe yellow fruits, moist notes of fallen leaves but also of sea air, saline and iodine notes, hints of fine wood... of pencil shavings, suggestions of fennel and aniseed, white almonds, very subtle notes too of fruit peel, like orange, loquats and dried apricots, and dry earth... but in essence, Tondonia Blanco has a mystical touch, an aromatic profile that we associate with the smell emanating from old tomes and rooms perfumed with incense. The Blanco Reserva is a journey in time, a resurgence of fond memories.

It is firm and dry on the palate; harmonious, balanced and elegant. Its entry is smooth but weighty, and it is oily, although without the Gran Reserva’s viscosity. This is definitely a fine white wine, bearing the Tondonia signature.

Pasado, ligeramente dulzón, desestructurado, irregular. No merece la pena. Hay mucho mejores dentro de esta gama de precios. No lo recomiendo.

Aged Bordeaux style. Extremely good if you like this style. Will last forever and get more honeyed. QPR IS UNBEATABLE.

Über Jahre im Fass gereifter Weisswein - einfach nur für den Liebhaber und Kenner, weil eine echte Seltenheit und schwierig zu bekommen - aber Hispavinus hat ihn....! Danke.

Ein klassischer weißer Rioja in dieser Qualität zu diesem Preis, ist kaum zu finden! Ein sehr spezieller Speisebegleiter oder aber ein ausgezeichneter Solist!
