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 Vintage_2006 as production of the ripe and supple Crianza increases.

Vineyards
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 spots.

Vinification
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.

Tasting Notes
100% unoaked Viura. Fresh, lifted and attractively floral nose with orange blossom and hints of lemon and citrus. The palate has fresh apricot and citrus flavours too - lively with zesty acidity and a clean, dry finish.
