Artuke Pies Negros 2017
Front and back

Review:

We can call the Pies Negros a village wine as all the grapes used in its production come from the small village of Ábalos, in the foothills of the Sierra Cantabria mountain range. The first vines were planted here on these chalky soils way back in the 1920s. Worked in an environmentally-friendly way at heights of 600 metres above sea level, the resulting wines capture the true character of the Atlantic.

The name of the wine — Pies Negros, black feet — is a homage to the tradition of grape-stomping, a tradition still alive and well at the Artuke Bodegas y Viñedos winery. Traditions like this together with the high altitudes of the vineyards deliver an excellent wine whose freshness and typicity give it its unique identity.

Grapes are hand-collected, destemmed, and crushed through stomping to start off the fermentation of the must. A small quantity of the wine undergoes malolactic fermentation in barrels before the finished wine is blended in different-aged wooden barrels to maintain the primary tones of the grape. Its cherry colour with violet hues shouts out its fruitiness. This wine is a treat, offering a certain complexity showing the balance between its juicy fruit and the tannins from the grape skin. Bitter delicacies add a touch of elegance to the essence of a simple grape, and make the Pies Negros a very moreish wine. Its aroma combines blackberries and liquorice with flowery hints of violets. Wide, lactic, and balanced on the palate, this alluring and tantalizing drink is a perfect wine to get to know the Tempranillo grape and rediscover the Rioja appellation.

Decided to order this mainly for the curiosity of the name I have to confess! Fruity, has character and stands well out from the bulk. Will certainly buy again.
