2016 Bodegas y Viñedos Artuke

Grapes Viura, Tempranillo
Colour Red
Origin Spain, Rioja
ABV 13.5%

Deep, bright purple-edged and glossy in the glass, such a soft, 'real juice' feel - another brilliant wine for this cuvée which is so different from all those brown and oaky and oxidised styles. Not just purple juice either, there's a nice savoury depth which makes this interesting to the end. They had great weather at harvest time - it did not rain at all from the 21st September to the end of the October. Drinking range: 2017 - 2020 L&S (Mar 2017)

The incredibly priced 2016 Artuke is a village blend from Baños de Ebro, mostly Tempranillo but with 5% Viura fermented with carbonic maceration, neutral yeasts and kept in concrete until bottling. It has freshness, an herbal twist and a very tasty palate with some fine-grained tannins. It's clean, fresh and very pleasant, a real bargain. Rating: 89 Luis Gutierrez, 2018)

Unwooded, juicy and bursting with bramble and red berry fruit, this is made using carbonic maceration in the traditional 'cosechero' style of the Rioja Alavesa. Best drunk chilled with a smile on your face. (Tim Atkin) Rating: 90 Decanter Magazine(Feb 2018)

Bodegas y Viñedos Artuke

These wines from Rioja are rooted firmly in their terroir. Artuke is all about small scale, biodynamic production: twenty two hectares of vines spread over thirty two plots between the stunning, hilly villages of Baños de Ebro and Abalos on the upper terrace of the river Ebro in La Rioja Alta, Northern Spain. Artuke is run by the family of Miguel Blanco, who have been working the land in this Northern part of Rioja Alavesa for over a century. Now, the helm is taken by Miguel's two sons Arturo and Kike which as you might guess, is where the name 'Artuke' is derived from. The aim of the brothers has been this: To create a new and individual wine which still respects the history of the wine region and of their family wine tradition. The result: A thoroughly modern style of Rioja, but not heavily extracted or heavily wooded in style.
