Characteristics of Albiker

Albiker is a red wine produced by Bodegas Altún, in Baños de Ebro, D.O.Ca Rioja.

 

Bodegas Altún is a winery that was founded in 1989, with the aim of producing wines of the highest quality, respecting the traditional production methods without ceasing to apply new winemaking technologies.

In 1994 José Antonio Martinez started to select vineyards to make their wines. Currently, they work with 45 hectares of their own vineyard in the Rioja Alavesa, with an average age of 40 years. Clayey-calcareous soils and a moderate Atlantic climate thanks to the protection of the Sierra de Cantabria, mark the character of these excellent wines.

 

Albiker is a wine made from Tempranillo and a small percentage of Viura, and produced with the traditional carbonic maceration method. Once the manual harvest and the grape selection are performed, whole bunches are stored in concrete presses where they are fermented. Once the fermentation has finished, grapes undergo the traditional stomping.

 

Albiker is a tasty, expressive and fresh wine, very fruity and slightly flowery. "Albiker" is formed by combining the names Alberto and Iker, the two sons of José Antonio.

Tasting notes Albiker

This vintage, rated as "Very Good", was characterized by the hard frost that occurred when the vegetative cycle was beginning in mid-April, and by the subsequent drought. Except for these two weather events, the year passed normally, with the vintage displaying a perfect health status in the last phase of the cycle. The wines of this vintage are characterized by having a somewhat higher average graduation than 2016, with a very good aging capacity and a high percentage of fine and very identifiable wines.
High summer temperatures define this vintage. After a mild winter with very little rainfall, spring began with a great deal of rain, which provided favourable conditions for the growth cycle of the vines. During the summer, they experienced very high temperatures and the absence of rain, which resulted in very healthy vines. As a general result, this was a balanced year, where the final absence of rains led to a good concentration of grapes. This year is noted for a vintage with volume that can be enjoyed as a young wine.
