Elaboration of Campo Viejo Blanco Semidulce
Campo Viejo Blanco Semidulce (Macabeo)
- View: Campo Viejo Blanco Semidulce shows a lovely straw yellow with steely glare.
- Nose: Aromas of very nice fruit and white flowers.
- Mouth: very fragrant and well balanced palate, ranging from the clear freshness of acidity and sweetness of sugar.
Feels very silky in the mouth and a fairly long finish.
PAIRING: interesting as an aperitif, but also accompanying dishes that traditionally call for a sweet white wine.
WINEMAKING: Viura grapes are carefully pressed to get the juice run wine. This wort is drained to leave relucientemente clear and is then fermented at a low temperature (about 14-16 ° C).
What makes this wine different is the fact of using a specially selected yeast to produce sweet white wines. This yeast is very sensitive to cold so as to reach the level of sugar you want, stop the fermentation with a "blast of cold air."
CELLAR: Campo Viejo
GRAPES: 100% Viura
Campo Viejo has a long and proud history that takes us back to the Roman Empire. However, it has just been in the half past century that our name has become synonymous with Rioja wines. From our first vintage –brewed in the former Ortigüela winery in 1959 –to the creation of the famous “Rioja Bottle” in ’61 and the unveiling of our state-of-the-art sustainable winery in 2001, we have been at the forefront of Rioja winemaking.More about the Winery
