You’ll taste/smell:We still can’t believe how the contrasting flavors of this wine work and balanced each other out so well! On the fruit side – cherry, plum, tomato, and dried fig, all in perfect harmony.  Add in the wood notes of cedar, leather, chocolate, tobacco, vanilla, and dill. If we have to describe it with just one adjective: generous!

Good to have it with: patatas riojanas, cured meats like jamon iberico, spicy chorizos, paellas.

Wine Details

Alcohol Grade: 14%
Aging/ Vinification: manual harvest from vines located in clay-calcareous soils at more than 600 meters of altitude in the town of Ábalos. After selection and pressing, using the traditional barefoot method, the wine ferments in stainless steel barrels. A small percentage of the wine undergoes malolactic fermentation in barrels and subsequent aging is combined in wood of different ages to preserve the most primary tones of the grape. 12 months oak aging.
Best to have it: 14-18ºC
Size: 750 ml

The Winery: Bodegas Artuke

Artuke is a small winery located in Baños de Ebro, a village in Rioja Alavesa on the banks of the river. In 1991, Roberto de Miguel decided to move away from bulk wine production onto bottled wine. Now his children Arturo and Kike, whose names are the basis of the winery they now lead, are shaping this project, firmly rooted in its surroundings and landscape.

Artuke is part of Rioja’n’Roll, a group of young producers who are committed to making singular wines which reflect their origins and terroir. Conscious of their heritage —they carried out a detailed study of the soils in their plots, located in Baños de Ebro, Ábalos, San Vicente de la Sonsierra and later in Samaniego— they fight to preserve it rather than transform it. That is one of the reasons behind their efforts to work the 25 hectares they own in the old way —no trellis on site; their plants are all bush vines, even the new ones.
