CHARACTERISTICS OF THE VINTAGE:
Recorded by The Regulating Council as GOOD. In Viña Tondonia we harvested 40.000 kilos of white grapes: Viura and Malvasía. It was a year on which we had spring frost that reduced the quantity but not the quality. The harvest was a good one and as it always happens with our Viña Tondonia reserve wines we make them every year and we make an special selection to produce wines with an special vocation to age in the barrel and therefore, also bottle aged increasing the roundness and maintaining the fruit of a young wine.
