The unique and personal 2009 Viña Tondonia Rosado Gran Reserva is a little darker than the 2008 I tasted next to it. It also feels a little riper and nuttier, with some traces of ripe apricots and flowers. It's also fuller and not as sharp as the 2008 and has a dry, chalky/stony palate. These are unique wines that develop in bottle for a long time. 14,200 bottles were filled in April 2015.

López de Heredia produces 400,000 bottles of wine per vintage, but there is no Gran Reserva in the market save for the 2009 rosé. The 2001 Gran Reserva wines (red and white Tondonia and Bosconia) should be released in late 2020 or in 2021, as they are usually aged in barrel for ten years and a further ten years in bottle before they are released -  Luis Gutiérrez, The Wine Advocate, June 2019.
