"This has to be one of the greatest bargains in white Rioja" - The Wine Advocate, 93 points

This really is one of the great bargains in the whole world of wine. A decade-old, oak-aged white Rioja from one of the most legendary estates in Spain. It's bold, rich, tangy, oaky and magnificent.

In a commercial decision that baffles us as much as it upsets us, Lopez de Heredia are soon to stop production of this wine as they are going to plant the Gravonia vineyards with Tempranillo for their popular red Rioja. We have some of the very last bottles around of this wonderful wine, so we want them to be treasured.

The Wine Advocate: "The cooler 2007 produced a superb 2007 Viña Gravonia Blanco from very old Viura vines on gravel soils; the wine fermented in ancient oak vats where they have never added any yeasts, and matured in oak barrels for four years, fined with egg whites and bottled in September 2012. The nose is unique, showing aromas of chamomile, beeswax, honey, mushroom and spices, with reminiscences of a white Graves or an aged white Hermitage, quite developed, showing it all and ready. The palate shows great acidity with some oaky hints, with a chalky sensation, deep flavors with persistence and superb length. This has to be one of the greatest bargains in white Rioja. It feels lively, approachable, but with enough of everything to provide pleasure for a long time. " 93 points
