Solar Viejo Rioja Tempranillo
A great value Rioja Tempranillo – perfect for the everyday or a special occasion.
This delicate Tempranillo boasts inviting red fruit aromas of raspberry, strawberry and cherry alongside a slight vegetal note. Balanced with good acidity, we love this refreshing Rioja as it is approachable, versatile and delicious.
Solar Viejo is a Rioja winery with over 75 years of history, and is situated near the medieval village of Laguardia. The original winery was founded in one of the emblematic manors of Laguardia, within the walled enclosure of the villa while the new facilities, built over 30 years ago, are in the vicinity of the town and preserve the essence of that original experience. The vineyards are protected by the cold winds of the Rioja Alavesa, in the foothills of the Sierra de Cantabria and it is here that the excellent quality grapes are grown.
Winemaker Vanesa Insausti has grown-up making Rioja and gained experience making wines all across the region before settling at Solar Viejo in 2007. Vanesa's aim is always to make the highest quality wines from the very best fruit.
