Campo Viejo Rioja Tempranillo 2010 - £3.75 per bottle when you buy 6 - Tesco in-store

62
Found 24th Sep 2012
Very rare to see Campo Viejo Rioja under £5 a bottle. Tesco currently have the Tempranillo 2010 on offer at £5 a bottle (which is quite a good price anyway) and with their present "25% off 6" promo it works out at just £3.75/bottle when you buy 6 (i.e. £22.50 for 6). It's definitely one of the best deals in their current promotion (which ends at midnight TONIGHT!!! - i.e. Tuesday!). Time to stock up!

It's the "non-multibuy" Scottish problem... :-|

None in Twickenham when I went last week. Nice wine for the price. There are also some ~£10 normal priced Riojas and Carinenas that are reduced to £5 which come out at £3.75 when you buy 6. These are excellent wines, deffo not worth £10 but probably £7 so still a great deal!

Plenty of nice wines at this price, have plumped for the Simply Malbec which I've had before and is excellent for £3.75. Good review here:

guardian.co.uk/lif…eek

This deal may last longer in some Express stores especially the South East as the promo change only went in about a week ago!

Yes the Scottish multi-buy question. Manys the time I have heard the local winos arguing the benefits of Rioja over Cabernet Sauvignon before deciding whether to have Sauvignon Blanc or Semillon with their crisps before deciding on that old favourite Buckfast and White Lightning.

And that's at 8am in the morning lol

Or try the Oyster Bay Merlot currently on offer at £7 and with the 25% off makes it £5.25 a bottle - an absolute steal IMO...

The price of a fiver may last longer but the 25% off finishes tomorrow

you can buy 2 cases ( 12 bottles ) online at Tesco Wine for the same price. free delivery if you spend £99

i had a delivery today and placed an order tonight for Wednesday delivery

also TCB / Quidco available ( 1 bottle free if you spend the £99 )

No stock though....

Bear in mind that this is Tempranillo and not the Rioja that normally retails for approx £6.00 per bottle.
The label looks exactly the same as the Rioja but the wine is slightly different.

Still a fine deal though, so I've added heat !

Rioja is the region. Tempranillo is a grape variety - one of three that typically end up in Rioja wines. This is definitely a Rioja and is pretty much the same as it's always been - just marketed differently (with more emphasis on the grape variety, like most wines are these days).

This is definitely Rioja, and is a lovely wine. Not as nice as the Veja Reserva but for this price is is really worth it. For Rioja read Bordeaux, region not grape. Most Rioja tend to be Tempranillos

Thank you!! Absolutely love this stuff!!!!!

£22.50 for just under one week's supply! Bargain.

Good luck to everyone finding stock. As others have said, it seems this promo has been going for a week and it does seem likely that some places will have empty shelves. At least this is a national promotion, so you aren't chasing the notorious "Tesco manager's special!" FWIW I know there was stock in Bangor (N.Wales) Tesco Extra as of yesterday, and if they'd sold out last week then it looks like they re-stocked over the weekend.

EDIT - The following isn't quite true!

Finally for anyone confused by the name, it seems that "Tempranillo" is simply the new name for Campo Viejo Rioja "Crianza". Crianza is the cheapest version of Rioja and is aged for 2 years (with at least 1 year in cask). "Reserva" is the slightly nicer and slightly more expensive version, having been aged for 3 years (with at least 1 year in cask) - so basically lay the Tempranillo down for 12mos and you have Reserva (if you can resist drinking it)! Finally a "Gran Reserva" is a Rioja aged for 5 years (with at least 2 years in cask), and this is the much more expensive one - the one you typically get in restaurants.

Edit - What this should be saying is that:-

The Tempranillo is a replacement for the old Crianza in the CV Rioja range and is made exclusively from Tempranillo grapes (rather than being a blend of grapes in previous CV Riojas). It has the same label as the older Crianza and Reserva CV's but is a younger wine and hasn't been aged as long as the Crianza.

Apols for the confusion!

Happy hunting!

Campo Viejo? I thought he was in the Tour de France.

same price online at tesco wines

Many thanks, OP for the great deal and explanation of the age of wines! Most useful indeed! :*)

Campo Viejo Tempranillo is NOT Campo Viejo Crianza renamed. It's a totally different wine with less ageing and therefore costs them less to produce.

Crianza is not "the cheapest version of Rioja". That is just plain Rioja, sometimes known as Joven ("young") and does not have the same amount of barrel ageing.

Many Rioja wines consist of a blend of grape varieties with Tempranillo being one of them, although usually the most dominant.

Is this still working in store? As it's no longer available online for me...

Basically you have summed up what I tried to put across earlier, although you have done it far more eloquently than I would have.

Still a great deal, I stocked up on this and got 12 bottles of the reserva too

OK, maybe I should have explained it better. I was talking about the "classic Campo Viejo" labelling - old and new.

What you say is true for Rioja's in general, but I don't think this is quite how the Campo Viejo range is currently labelled (at least not at the moment). The entry level for Campo Viejo (the Joven) is actually the "Vintage" range and this has a very different label to the classic label we all know on CV. The 2011 vintage (i.e. 1 year old) is currently available. The name "Tempranillo" has now replaced Crianza and the 2010 (i.e. 2 years old) is now available. It has the classic CV label. And so on up through Reserva and Gran Reserva.

But you don't have to take my word for it - thedrinksbusiness.com/201…za/

You keep quoting that article, read the first line of it again.....

The well-known brand from Rioja has replaced its crianza with Campo Viejo Tempranillo 2010 following research which shows that almost 70% of wine drinkers consider the grape as the most important factor when deciding what to buy.

Get the yellowtail shiraz instead, it's lovely!

That is a completely different type of wine altogether ?

OK, well I wanted to be sure about this so I just had a very careful look at the label on a bottle. I'd assume a Crianza should be marked as such somewhere on the bottle? I can't find anything. The only reference to age is "Carefully matured for more than one year in our cellar", which of course probably does not make it a Crianza! (As it would say 2 years and a big chunk of that "more than one year" is almost certainly in the bottle).

So it would seem what you were both trying to tell me is right! Pernod Ricard have replaced the "Crianza" with "Tempranillo", and this is a younger wine and probably hasn't seen as much oak..... And, it appears CV no longer have a Crianza in their range. Sorry! My apologies for the confusion, and thank you for your persistance!

It's still cheap though! X)
