Artuke El Escolladero is a barrel-aged red wine crafted by Bodegas y Viñedos Artuke, using Tempranillo and Graciano varieties from the D.O.Ca. Rioja region.

The name Artuke is an acronym derived from Arturo and Kike, the Blanco brothers who started this project. In line with their family's century-old winemaking tradition, they aimed to create distinctive wines. They own 22 hectares of vineyards in Baños de Ebro, Ábalos, and San Vicente de la Sonsierra (Rioja Alta). As members of the Rioja'n'Roll group, they focus on capturing the essence of the terroir in each bottle.

Included In 2-Pack:

2021 El Escolladero
"El Escolladero is a vineyard planted in 1950 in the village of Ábalos at 660 meters in altitude. As with most reds, I tasted two vintages of it, 2021 and 2022. The 2021 El Escolladero, produced with 85% Tempranillo and 15% Graciano from the 0.96 hectares of vines, fermented with uncrushed grapes and matured in 600-liter oak foudres. It has the aromatic finesse of the 2021s, elegant, open, expressive, very clean, transparent and focused. The palate is beautifully textured, with very fine and elegant tannins and great freshness."
-Wine Advocate 96 points

2021 La Condenada
“The 2021 La Condenada was produced with the field blend of 80% Tempranillo and 20% other grapes like Graciano, Garnacha or Palomino. It has 13.8% alcohol and kept a low pH (3.36), denoting very good freshness and reflecting a cooler year. It fermented destemmed with indigenous yeasts and matured in 600-liter oak foudres for one year. It has a very elegant, defined, nuanced and complex nose, aromatic and clean, expressive, mixing flowers, red and black fruit, aromatic herbs and a spicy touch. The palate reveals terrific balance, very fine tannins, great balance and freshness and a long, dry finish with a chalky twist. It should age nicely in bottle, as it has the components and the balance between them to do so. 2,000 bottles were filled in December 2022.”
