Characteristics of Campo Viejo Blanco Semidulce
Campo Viejo Blanco Semidulce 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 Semidulce is a wine made from Viura from the oldest vineyards.
After the harvest, the grapes are slightly pressed, using only the flor must. Once it is clean, the must ferments in stainless steel deposits at a controlled temperature (14-16ºC). To make this wine they use special yeast for sweet wines that are very sensitive to the cold. Therefore, when the wine reaches the desired amounts of sugar, just with a slight gust of cold air they halt the fermentation. When the fermentation has ended, it is aged for 18 months in French and American oak barrels.
Campo Viejo Blanco Semidulce is a creamy, ample and slightly sweet wine. A fantastic balance between sweetness and freshness, which make this wine a great companion in impossible pairings.
La Rioja is one of the most important areas of wine production in the world. It has a long history, and exceptional soils and climates. From the Tempranillo and Grenache varieties they make great red wines that are masterfully aged which demonstrates the experience passed from generation to generation.
