ON THE WATERFRONT
A great terroir is much more complex than one imagines. It is not only the sun, the earth, its natural ability to drain, to retain moisture (limestone, clay), its percentage of different elements that will make the soil warm or cold, rich or poor, balanced or insufficient. It is also their exposure on a hill, on a plateau or in a hollow, which makes these small places exceptional sites. At Viña Solorca wineries, the vineyard is located at different points along the riverbank, at an altitude of 800 to 900 meters above sea level on small hills facing the basins of the Duero and Gromejón rivers, which concentrate the warm summer temperatures, maturity increases and the soil is drained
All these particularities contribute to the style of Viña Solorca wine, resolutely rich, complex and structured, due to the precocity of its terroir; but also elegant, distinguished, pure and very fresh thanks to the Tinta Fina and the perfectly balanced composition (limestone / sand) of its soils.
