ORGANIC RIOJA, Artesa 2015

£8.50

Product Description

Fresh redcurrant and cherry hints on the nose combine with lifted herbal notes. The palate has complex juicy bramble fruit, black pepper, as well as more savoury, herbal characters to add interest. A classic Rioja – nicely integrated.

This large, family-owned estate draws from 800 hectares of elevated hillside vineyards in some of the best zones of Rioja Baja. Thanks to a combination of the high quality of the grapes from these vineyards and modern vinification cellars, the young, unoaked wines are fresh and vibrant with good richness of fruit for wines at this level. A new barrel ageing cellar was completed in 2006 as production of the ripe and supple Crianza increases.
