This wine has been on my radar for more than a year. It's from one of my favourite regions in Spain; Rioja. Situated in the northern part of Spain, it's both the most well known area and the most traditional when it comes to winemaking.
But things are changing, and young and fresh ideas are getting acknowledgement around the globe. The winemakers behind this bottle wanted to create something new, but still respect the history and the terroir. It's all about biodynamic and small scale production. Things that have a very good ring to it in 2021 😊
Artuke has 95% Tempranillo and since they don't use any oak, it gives you a nice chance to taste what this grape is all about.
It's a lot of wine for the money and a versatile bottle when it comes to food. All we need in January.
