Solar Viejo Crianza

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

Garnet red colour with bright red and rose petal tinges. Medium full on the nose with opening aromas of cedar, pipe tobacco, graphite and tea balanced by fragrances of ripe plum, blackberry and cherry combined with hints of orange peel, cinnamon, black truffle and baking pastry, all of which are the result of careful oak ageing. Soft velvet on the palate, with finely balanced acidity combined with sweet structured tannins provided by the ripe fruit. The effect is a back palate of pepper, thyme, cocoa and vanilla, all of which combine with the opening fruit to produce a fine Rioja crianza faithful to its vintage and origin.
