| 159 MORRELL FINE WINE AND SPIRITS V ISIT u S AT MORRELLWINE .c OM cALL 800.96.WINES (800.969.4637) S PAIN L opez De Heredia is an icon of classic Rioja. Their library releases of decades past provide the Rioja lover with a glimpse into a storied history of the region and the opportunity to drink a perfectly matured wine with impeccable provenance. Their traditional ways continue on to this very day, as current vintages on the Tondonia Gran Reserva are rendered and vinified though the same rigorous processes as the 1981 vintage was in its day. The only difference is, that while most producers are selling their current vintage, l opez De Heredia provides us with the opportunity to procure a perfectly matured bottle of Rioja Gran Reserva, directly from their cellars. ✦ Lopez de Heredia Vina Tondonia Rioja Gran Reserva 1981 W a 95 » $269 "... A vibrant nose reminiscent of coeval Burgundy… It is supremely well-balanced with an energetic finish... This wonderful Rioja is drinking perfectly now and will age effortlessly." Neal Martin (1631023) Ma T u R i TY H a S iTS P R i V i L e G e S Rioja is a paradise for lovers of mature wine and collectors. i n no other region do we find such style, intensity, and depth, with the ability to mature for decades in the cellar. The value sometimes seems almost too good to be true, and yet, as you taste these wines through the decades, the reality becomes apparent—Rioja is the best relative value in age-worthy wine today and no other property embodies this statement better than Lopez de Heredia.
