The Details

In a Nutshell

Produced from top quality organic fruit - fresh and juicy bramble characters.

Tasting Notes

Fresh redcurrant and cherry hints on the nose combine with lifted herbal notes. The palate has complex juicy bramble fruit, black pepper, as well as more savoury, herbal characters to add interest. A classic Rioja - nicely integrated.

Production Notes

200 hectares of estate vineyards near Alfaro provide the basis of the Artesa range and the best of these, at high altitude (500 to 600 metre), with mature vines and poor, stony soils, are being converted to organic production.

Fermented in stainless steel. Matured 6 months in American oak barrels.

Producer - Bodegas Artesa

This large, family-owned estate draws from 800 hectares of elevated hillside vineyards in some of the best zones of Rioja Baja.

IWC 2013

Lots of toasty coconut oak flavours on a creamy strawberry nose, with sweet, ripe raspberry and cherry fruit on the palate.

Sommelier Wine Awards 2014, Judges' Comments

With a good mix of rich, red and black cherries and berries plus raisins, a few floral notes and a balanced, lingering finish, this appealed widely.

Soft texture and warm Christmas spices.

Good by the glass or with steak haché.
