Campo Viejo Viura-Tempranillo white Rioja.
Campo Viejo has unveiled its first ever Viura-Tempranillo Blanco white Rioja, launching exclusively in the UK. Indigenous to Rioja, Tempranillo Blanco is a natural mutation of the Tempranillo red variety.
The Viura-Tempranillo Blanco 2015 is a blend of 14% Tempranillo Blanco and 86% Viura to produce a “light and refreshing” wine.
“The planting of experimental vineyards was crucial as it allowed us to uncover the authenticity and potential of this grape variety,” said chief winemaker Elena Adell.
“Further experimentation in our on-site nano-winery once we’d harvested the grapes allowed us to find the perfect blend to bring this wine to market.”
Campo Viejo Viura-Tempranillo Blanco 2015 will be available in limited supply from early May in UK supermarkets.
