D.O.Ca. Rioja (La Rioja)
Campo Viejo Blanco is a white wine produced by the winery Campo Viejo in Logroño, D.O.Ca. Rioja.
Campo Viejo has a long history that dates back to its first harvest in 1959, in the old winery of Ortigüela. The modern, sustainable winery was opened in 2001. Here, the long dedication of Campo Viejo to the production of Rioja wines, alongside the use of advanced techniques, has allowed them to create new combinations using the traditional methods, to now offer wine styles that are more modern, vibrant and expressive.
Campo Viejo controls more than 1900 hectares to make their wines, most of them planted with vines that are over 25 years old. This way, they have different altitudes, orientations and soils, to chose the best grapes in the best conditions.
Campo Viejo Blanco is a wine made from Viura, Verdejo, Chardonnay and White Tempranillo.
After the harvest, the must is settled with the flotation technique, using nitrogen to protect the colour and the aroma. Once the must is clean, it ferments in stainless steel deposits at a controlled temperature, 16-18ºC. 10% of the wine is aged for 3 months in new American oak barrels. During this time, the rest of the wine remains in contact with its fine lees.
Campo Viejo Blanco is a light, silky and fresh wine. It stands out for its aromatic intensity, with prevailing aromas of Mediterranean white fruit and flowery notes, with a light roasted background.
