Viña Tondonia 2008 Rioja Rosado Gran Reserva

This rosé wine from the northern Spanish DOC of Rioja is a blend of 60% Garnacho (aka Grenache), 30% Tempranillo and 10% Viura, matured in oak barrels for 4 years.

An interesting note is that when the term "Gran Reserva" was defined in the 1970s, the owner of Viña Tondonia, Don Pedro López Heredia, objected on the grounds that the new terms were too lenient and so refused to use the new classifications on his labels.  Even today, the López Heredia family (and other top estates) maintain that the official classifications are too lenient, and release their wines according to their own "estate classification" of significantly stricter requirements and after far lengthier respective maturation periods.
