Artuke - Rioja, Spain (2021)
A young, vivacious red wine from Rioja produced by Bodegas Artuke (brothers Arturo and Kike). It is a blend of Tempranillo (95%) and Viura (5%) from a mix of their vines planted between 1902 and 2005.
Artuke is produced by the carbonic maceration method - most associated with Beaujolais and yet just as traditional, but rarely seen outside of Rioja. This is literally what the locals are drinking. A fresh, red berry and fun wine.
