Solar Viejo Crianza
Ripe garnet red. The initial nose stems from the effects of oak ageing, mainly vanilla and caramel. Follow ing this there are the fine red fruit aromas typical of Tempranillo in Rioja Alavesa.
The palate is soft, w ith balanced acidity. The typical Tempranillo liquorice flavours are immediately apparent, but quickly follow ed by fine fruit flavours and light balsamic notes.
The tannins are fine and balanced, and the finish is elegantly oaky from judicious cask ageing.
A wine to accompany any sort of food. Canapés, Serrano and Chorizo, cheese, grilled, casseroled or barbecued meats.
Serve at room temperature, betw een 15 and 18ºC.
