2022 Rioja

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

The remarkable Artuke success story all began with this carbonic maceration blend of Tempranillo and 5% Viura back in 1991. Offering remarkable value for money, this is scented, vibrant and wonderfully sappy, with a chalky base note, a waft of violets and bramble and black cherry fruit sweetness.

It's Rioja Jim, but not as we know it! Partial carbonic maceration to promote the bright primary fruitiness of the Tempranillo, raspberry and juicy cherry, sappy and bright, with a thirst quenching tang. There's some lovely tannic build, that stops the wines just being a fruit bomb and it actually lends shape and definition to the lively finish.L&S (Sep 2023)

A gorgeously vibrant red, made from tempranillo and the white viura grape. A juicy and contemporary style from an old region.Victoria Moore, The Daily Telegraph (Apr 2024)


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 de Miguel 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.
