Characteristics of Artillero

Artillero is a red wine from the D.O.C La Rioja produced by Oxer Bastergieta in Laguardia, Alava.

Oxer Bastegieta is a winemaker who began to produce Chacoli at the family winery in Kortezubi, a small Basque town close to the Urdaibai natural park. He first moved to Rioja to study a masters in oenology and viticulture, where he fell in love with the landscapes of the Rioja Alavesa. He then set up residence in Laguardia in 2009 where he began to to inspect the vineyards and began to produce wines from the zone.

Artillero is one of his wines to come from a single plot of vineyard. The plot used is situated in Elvillar de Álava, is 95 years old and planted with the Tempranillo variety. The viticulture is carried out in an organic manner, while only the best bunches are selected after a precise selection process.

The vinification process begins with fermentation in stainless steel tanks. The wine is then decanted into French oak barrels where it undergoes malolactic fermentation and is then aged for 14 months.

Artillero is a complex and corpulent red wine where the fruit combines perfectly with its time in the barrel, and it offers a great potential for keeping.

Tasting notes Artillero

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.
This vintage was marked by a very rainy and cold spring just at the time of the growth cycle. This fact caused it to ripen unevenly and with a certain delay. Thanks to a fairly dry September and October, the grapes that ripened with a certain delay were harvested in a selective manner. A complicated vintage, but with good results since there was an exhaustive selection of the grapes. A good balance between concentration and acidity in their youth define the wines from this vintage.
