Campo Viejo reveals exclusive travel retail expression

Winemaker Campo Viejo has unveiled a new expression exclusively for global travel retail.

Selección de Tempranillo will be available in Dufry stores, after Campo Viejo welcomed the retailer to Spain's Rioja wine region last year.

The wine was launched at London Heathrow's Terminal 5 ahead of a wider roll-out to countries around the world, including Spain, Australia and America.

Aged in French and American oak barrels for 17 months, the expression sits between Campo Viejo's Reserva and Gran Reserva as a special edition.

The vintage is described as smooth and spirited, with red fruit and herbal notes on the nose and a bright flavour profile which would pair well with pasta or rice dishes.

Elena Adell, Campo Viejo's chief winemaker, said: "It's exciting to see such a collaborative project come to life. Selección de Tempranillo is a Rioja wine crafted with care exclusively for travellers, to savour with their family and friends."

Special tasting sessions, hosted by brand ambassadors across the UK and Spanish markets, will also take place to introduce the public to the new expression.

David de Miguel, global category head of liquor at Dufry, said: "Campo Viejo is a valued part of our portfolio at Dufry and working on this project together with the brand has been a great experience."
