Tasting Notes: A refreshing change to some of the more traditional white riojas - this is fresh and bright, crisp and enjoyable - a modern unoaked style. 100% unoaked Viura. Clean, fresh and attractive nose showing hints of ripe peach and pear. Ripe, round and almost creamy palate cut through with a refreshing streak of zesty acidity.

Producer Details: 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.

In The Vineyard: Artesa Rioja Viura is made from 100% Viura grapes cultivated in vineyards in the Rioja Baja region of Spain. The vineyards are at an altitude of 400 metres above sea level and the Viura vines are, on average, 20 years old. 80% of the vines are trained in the trellis method and 20% are bush trained. The vineyards have clay stone soils with some sandy

In The Winery: The Viura grapes are crushed and chilled for several hours before temperature controlled fermentation is
carried out (temperature is not allowed to exceed 21 degrees Centigrade during fermentation). The wine is fined using bentonite and filtered (plate method) before being bottled.
