2011 Lopez de Heredia Vina Gravonia Blanco (750ml)

Macabeo from Rioja, Spain

2011 Lopez de Heredia Vina Gravonia Blanco

A gently flinty edge to the toasted almonds and praline, as well as burnt-toffee aromas here. The fruit is subdued, behind the savory aromas. Some grapefruit and lemon in the mix. On the palate, this has a very fresh, lively and sapid feel with mouthwatering acidity, holding long, fresh grilled-almond flavors, as well as lemon rind. Fino-like freshness to close. Drink or hold.

The white that will be sold from October or November 2019, the 2011 Viña Gravonia Blanco comes from a warmer year with very low yields, and the wine is already showing some tertiary notes, with very subtle diesel-like hints. The palate is bone dry with some nutty undertones and a salty/bitter finish. These are whites for food. 18,667 bottles were filled in November 2016, at the same time as the 2010, which means this had a shorter élevage (probably the sign of a slightly weaker year).
