Solar Viejo Cosecha

Solar Viejo, situated in Rioja Alavesa in the northern part of La Rioja close to the medieval village of Laguardia, was founded in 1937. Solar Viejo is named after the "Casas Solariegas", ancestral homes or family seats that are typical in Laguardia. For generations the winery has had a strong relationship, based on life-long collaboration, with local vine growers. This relationship ensures that the grapes are of the best quality.

Tasting Notes

Deep, cherry-red colour with a purple hue and touches of violet. On the nose its intense and complex opening is dominated mainly by a complex mix of typical fruit of Rioja Alavesa, including raspberries, cherry, strawberry, blackcurrant and blackberry backed up by touches of fruit yoghurt, fresh tea leaves and hints of liquorice. All of these classic aromas bring to mind the carbonic maceration wines of the area. The palate is warm, deep and long, with a refreshing acidity, well balanced ripe tannins, and again the final sensations of liquorice, ripe black plums, morello cherries and peach skins.
