Deep cherry red with a very fruity nose - blackcurrants predominate but there is a little oak in the background. The first taste sensation is that the wine is very smooth and very fruity. Cherries and blackcurrants are especially strong. There is some sharpness in the background. The fruity flavours linger on the palate.by: Tony T (4 Jan) - Vintage 2017

First time we bought Viña Real, the Crianza 2016 and Reserva 2015. The crianza 2016 is great value for the money and recommendable when you like classical Rioja with modern touch at very good price.
The Viña Real brand was created in 1960 by Cvne, the founding winery of the group which also includes Viñedos del Contino. Although the first wines to be released onto the market and made with Viña Real grapes (in the Elciego area and close to the old royal road, the Camino Real, hence the name) date back to 1920. Today, looking to over a 100 years of Cvne experience, the new Viña Real winery offers modern-style wines that are well prepared for a long life, and thus combines...
