The wine

Artadi is particularly well-known for its red wines, but it also makes a white with the same special care and excellent result: Viñas de Gain Blanco. With this wine Artadi offers an energetic white, one for cellaring, with all the delicacy, subtlety and minerality that its mastery is capable of extracting, both from the Viura grapes and that superb terroir located at the foot of the Sierra de Cantabria mountains.

Just like its red sibling, Viñas de Gain Blanco is made using fruit from vineyards which the winery owns in Laguardia at an altitude ranging between 450 and 700 metres, planted on calcareous-clay soils. The viticulture employed is totally environmentally friendly and the vinification processes are carefully managed down to the last detail. The must ferments in oak for 5 weeks and the wine matures on its lees for 24 months. The result is a clean, bright wine that gives off in the glass aromas of fresh fruit along with citric, balsamic and toasty notes, and bakery hints. It's fresh, fruit-driven and unctuous on the palate, lively, with volume and very good acidity.

A modern, classy wine that adds extra elegance to food pairings, and particularly flavoursome when served with fish.

Wine critics reviewsReviews by Parker

The white 2019 Viñas de Gaín Blanco, which wears the subtitle Vineyard Selection, comes from a number of vineyards in Laguardia and Elvillar at 450 to 700 meters in altitude on clay and limestone soils. 2019 was warm and dry, and they still managed to keep the wine at 13% alcohol and with a pH of 3.33. It shows quite austere and faintly balsamic, with notes of waxy apples and a vibrant palate with chalky austerity, clean, pure and dry. Impressive. 17,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in April 2021 after two years and four months in tank with the lees.

Artadi

Bodegas Artadi is, in fact, the name by which the Cosecheros Alaveses cooperative is known, a well-orchestrated project that started up in 1985, in which several vine-growing associates became involved to show that cosechero (young red) wine could also prove to be great wine. They were successful, with their cosecheros and all the other wines they have added to their catalogue. During the 1990s, under the direction of Juan Carlos López de Lacalle, the winery saw its prestige...
