Characteristics of Campo Viejo Blanco

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.

Tasting notes Campo Viejo Blanco

This vintage, rated as "Very Good", was characterized by the hard frost that occurred when the vegetative cycle was beginning in mid-April, and by the subsequent drought. Except for these two weather events, the year passed normally, with the vintage displaying a perfect health status in the last phase of the cycle. The wines of this vintage are characterized by having a somewhat higher average graduation than 2016, with a very good aging capacity and a high percentage of fine and very identifiable wines.
High summer temperatures define this vintage. After a mild winter with very little rainfall, spring began with a great deal of rain, which provided favourable conditions for the growth cycle of the vines. During the summer, they experienced very high temperatures and the absence of rain, which resulted in very healthy vines. As a general result, this was a balanced year, where the final absence of rains led to a good concentration of grapes. This year is noted for a vintage with volume that can be enjoyed as a young wine.
After a winter with normal temperatures and rainfall for D.O.Ca Rioja, high temperatures in spring and summer market his year, as well as the absence of rain at the most dangerous times for the vineyard. These factors led to very healthy vines, but the harvest was brought forward three weeks on average. As a result, this year was rated as a very good one in the area, with the only drawback of not reaching full ripeness. Therefore, the wines from this vintage are those typical from Rioja, with a slightly higher alcoholic strength and a good balance between acidity and ripening.
It was a fairly balanced year until the harvest season arrived. The beginning of the cycle, in October, started with high temperatures, and it was not until mid-November that the first frosts began and the leaves of the vines began to fall to prepare for winter. Throughout the winter, rainfall was generous and water reserves could be secured for the growth cycle period. During the months of March and April, there was an increase in temperatures that led to the good sprouting of the plant. The growth cycle of the vines was suitable, and the sudden rise of temperatures resulted in quite a fast blooming. There was an optimal growth of the fruit, until the harvest season, when rains damaged the state of the grapes and caused a drop in production. This is a good vintage, but the last rains damaged the final result. The wines are good and can be drunk in the short- and mid-term, they have a medium body and material.

    04/12/19 Campo Viejo Blanco 2018 A crisp, dry white wine by an established producer
  •  
    07/03/19 Campo Viejo Blanco 2017 Some of our friends are in Naked Wine and we took a bottle of this to their party. A few days later they contacted my wife to ask where we had got it from. They loved it and had looked in the UK and couldn't find it. I was really chuffed and a little embarrassed to tell them it only cost us £4.50. We like the other whites we ordered but the Campo Viejo stands out from the rest.
