Characteristics of Viña Gravonia

Viña Gravonia is a white wine made by Bodega R. Lopez Heredia Viña Tondonia, one of the historic wineries in the DO Rioja.

La Bodega Viña Tondonia is located in the Barrio de la Estación in Haro, a historic area. An area of the world with the highest concentration of wineries per square meter.

Viña Gravonia is a single variety Viura.

The grapes come from the Viña Zaconia estate, an estate owned by the winery, located on the banks of the River Ebro with 50 years old vineyards. They are planted at an altitude of 200 meters above sea level with poor soils containing a lot of stones. The harvest is done manually, taking care of each bunch so that the grape does not break and start premature fermentation. The grapes are transferred to the winery in about 100 kilo containers of poplar wood made in the cooperage in the winery. The grapes are broken to release the must, this is fermented without the skins in large oak vats.

Viña Gravonia undergoes a four years aging in oak barrels and is subjected to two rackings every year. Viña Tondonia is one of the few wineries that still produces their own barrels in the cooperage that is installed in the winery. Once the aging has finished, it is clarified with fresh egg whites and bottled without being filtered.

Viña Gravonia can be drunk immediately or stored at a good temperature and humidity for 10 years.

Viña Gravonia is a very special white wine. It seems like a red with its body and richness, but keeps all the freshness of a white.

Tasting notes Viña Gravonia

A good balance and few climate incidents define this vintage. The autumn began with mild temperatures and lack of rain. In March began the rain,as well as the development of the vines. At the beginning of the growth cycle of the vines, temperatures decrease and there were a lot of rainy days. This caused an irregular growth of the vineyard. After an unstable month of May, the temperatures increased, and a cycle without rains began. This resulted in perfect sprouts and a good flowering. The summer months were warm and with some heat waves, which caused a slower growth cycle and some symptoms of water stress, and thus a concentration of fruit. At the end of September, and before the harvest, there was some rain that was perfect for a great year thanks to the perfect ripening of the grapes. Good acidity and concentration define the wines from this vintage. Fine wines with a great ageing potential.
An excellent vintage in Rioja. With a mild autumn, and a cold and rainy winter, the growth season began with enough resources for the perfect development of the vines. During this period, there were no pests and diseases until the end of the growth cycle. During the harvest, there were no significant rains, so the health and ripening of the grapes were excellent. A great year with great aged wines that can be stored for a long time. Perfect balance between the most amiable tannins and the good acidity, which give these wines an extraordinary length.
2010 was considered the perfect vintage after some very good years. An optimal growth cycle, without incidents regarding the health of the vineyards. The harvest took place during a magnificent state of the vines and with a moderate production, with good fruit setting and slow ripening. A great year with excellent ageing potential, which resulted in spicy and fruity wines, with a very good structure and acidity.

    Imágenes y situación D.O.Ca. Rioja

    In La Rioja there are large wineries and also great wineries. A handful of them are century-old, some are very well-known, some are actually quite small. We must not forget family-run wineries and the abundant harvester's wineries or "cosecheros". Viña Tondonia is many of those things, besides being a winery that has been run by the same family since its origins. Through four generations and despite the continuous and tempting offers of multinationals, for a hundred years, R. López de Heredia Viña Tondonia is still a single-family winery. Here, the four generations that have directed it have continued with the philosophy and the social and work principles set by its founder more than 139 years ago.
