Viña Gravonia Blanco is a superb white Rioja from 2002 produced by the critically acclaimed Lopez de Heredia winery. The nose is beautiful with notes of honeysuckle and beeswax while the palate is fresh, crisp and exuberant with impressive structure. Flavours of bitter lemon, nougat, hazelnut and a bit of smoke come to the tongue and hang there through a great finish. This will drink well now through to the 2020s.

Neal Martin of Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"I have adored, indeed occasionally worshiped, the wines of Lopez de Heredia for many years... It is commonly known that if you are seeking bags of fruit and lashings of oak, this is not the place to come. My views and these scores might be irrational to someone with a penchant for lush, voluptuous Rioja. Lopez de Heredia is the apotheosis of traditional, classic wines: taut, fresh, bucolic, utterly charming and amazingly long-lived. "

The Lopez de Heredia winery is renowned for minimal use of technology in its wine-making process, especially in its controlled oxidative techniques and temperature control, leading to truly natural tasting wines with great character. Mark Savage, Master of Wine, writes:
'Lopez de Heredia wines are an object lesson in the harmonious relationship that can be achieved between wine and wood when it is done with experience. It is indeed an expertise of a very special sort that is practised to perfection at this bodega and no great private wine cellar or good restaurant list should ignore them.'
