The Details

In a Nutshell

A vibrant Tempranillo that over-delivers in character and value.

Tasting Notes

A youthful, fruity red with ripe, juicy black fruit aromas and hints of sweet spice. The palate has flavours of black cherry, more sweet spice, and a warming mouthfeel with gentle tannins. A hint of liquorice and sour cherry on the finish.

Production Notes

Artesa Rioja Tempranillo is made from Tempranillo grapes cultivated in hillside vineyards in the best parts of Rioja Baja. The vineyards are at altitudes around 600 metres above sea level and have clay stone soil with some sandy spots. The drop irrigation method is used in the vineyards. 80% of the vines are trained using the trellis system and 20% are bush trained.

The Tempranillo grapes are crushed and chilled for several hours before fermentation is started. Fermentation is temperature controlled (no higher than 28 degrees Centigrade) and lasts for 15 days with twice daily pumping over. The wine is fined using bentonite or egg white and then plate filtered before bottling.

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.

Cherry and berry flavours abound. This has a nice mouthfeel and a fleshy, medium length finish. Great value.
