Marqués de Tomares has a grape growing history since 1886. Later a winery founded in 1910 by Don Román Montaña, today it is still operated by his grandchildren who continue to maintain the wineries tradition both in the winery and in the vineyards. With nearly 106 hectares of family owned vineyards, many of which more than 100 years old, they continue to make exceptionally classic wines.
We were able to secure a few bottles of the 1987 Blanco, which is a wine based off of Viura grapes, aged in a combination of French and American oak for over a year and then rested in bottle. These gems came directly from the Bodega, as a late release from a great vintage of theirs. Texturally this is silky and elegant. For those familar with drinking Lopez de Heredia Tondonia Blanco this is not like that. This is lower acidity, more generious, lactic, soft and lengthy on the finish. This would be lovely with a cheese soufflé or homemade Parmesan Crisps.
