  • Product details
    The original Solar Viejo winery was founded within the walled enclosure of a manor in the medieval village of Laguardia. It was there that the first Solar Viejo was developed, the icon of the winery, produced for over 75 years with Rioja Designation of Origin, the oldest in Spain. A blend of base wines made from Tempranillo, Solar Viejo Rioja Crianza Tempranillo is aged in American and French oak barrels for 12 months to give the sort of wine that is the first to go at a dinner party
  • Tasting notes
    Blooming red in the glass, Solar Viejo Rioja Crianza Tempranillo has vanilla and caramel on the nose from its time in oak, followed by red fruit aromas of raspberries and ripe strawberries typical of the region. Soft and supple, with characteristic liquorice immediately evident, this wine has enough complexity to keep it interesting, good length, with medium acidity. A wine to have with lightly aged cheeses, cured meats and salt-baked fish
