TASTINGNOTES Campo Viejo is a leading winery established in 1959 in the famous Rioja wine region in Spain. Campo Viejo Rioja Reserva DOC is a blend of Tempranillo, Graciano, and Mazuelo. The wine displays complex aromas with a great balance between the fruit (cherries, black plums, ripe blackberries) and the wood (clove, pepper, vanilla and coconut). Aged in barrels for 18 months. Food pairing includes red meat, game, wild mushrooms and mature cheeses.
At the heart of a river junction at a special estate in California lies McManis Family Vineyards, where five generations of family farmers have perfected the art of growing fruit with outstanding depth of flavour. After 7-9 days of fermentation on the skins, the wine was pressed and finished fermentation in stainless steel tanks. The wine was then aged on new and used French and American oak for 4-6 months. Aromas and flavours of ripe blackberries, boysenberries and plums with chocolate notes, vanilla, toasty oak and velvety tannins. Serve with red meats, or barbeque.
