Casa Solar Tempranillo
WHY WE LOVE IT
- This wine is sourced from Vino de la Tierra de Castilla.
- Aged 3 months in American oak.
Varietal Composition: 100% Tempranillo
Elaboration: Casa Solar Tempranillo is aged 3 months in American oak. The winery has state-of-the-art installations to elaborate wines and over 6,000 American and French oak barrels to age innovative and versatile wines, conceived for the more “classic” consumers and for the more modern trends.
Tasting Notes: Highly intense nose with aromas of black plums, raisins and dates. Hints of vanilla, coffee-cream and mocha. Mineral background, very complex. Smooth and silky palate with pleasant tannins from both the grape and the oak. Long finish.
The Martínez-Bujanda family is inextricably linked to Spain’s Rioja winemaking region. In 1889, Joaquín Martínez-Bujanda founded the bodega in the Basque village of Oyón, and ever since, the family has been at the forefront of enology within the Vino de la Tierra de Castilla IGP area.
The family’s fourth and fifth generations now own three wineries, including Cosecheros y Criadores, established in 1951 and the producer of Casa Solar wines. Cosecheros y Criadores is a historic term meaning “growers” and “agers.”
