The wine

Viñas de Gain is the most accessible wine from Artadi and one of the best options to begin to discover their amazing range of wines. Although it does not bear the appellation name and its label may leave a doubt as to whether it actually is a Rioja wine, we can assure you that this is definitely yet another small wonder from Artadi.

What does this wine taste like?

Displaying an aromatic profile of cherries and eucalyptus wrapped up with a flawless ageing process, Viñas de Gain is a flavoursome wine, agile in the mouth and easy to drink. Rich in aromas and flavours of fresh red fruit, it offers a crispy feel with dry sensations of eucalyptus leaves and a touch of damp earth. Ageing notes of liquorice and coffee beans are also especially noticeable in its youth.

Drinking and storing

Like all Artadi wines, it is a powerful wine but also surprisingly pleasant and immediately accessible on opening. However, if we let it stand and aerate a while, we are sure to enjoy it much more.

Serve between 16ºC and 18ºC

Wine critics reviewsReviews by Parker and Jancis Robinson

The young red 2019 Viñas de Gaín was produced with Tempranillo grapes from different vineyards in Laguardia and Elvillar at 450 to 700 meters in altitude, and it fermented in oak and stainless steel vats followed by malolactic in barrel and an élevage in barrel for nine months. They aimed for a fresh, fruit-driven and juicy red that comes from a low-yielding year, so the wine is concentrated but keeps the approachable style. It has nice balance. In warmer and riper years, they do shorter macerations at lower temperature and a short élevage to keep the aromatic and fruit-driven character, avoiding heavy wines. This is always a very good value within the Artadi range. 90,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in September 2020.

Relaxed, rich and well balanced. Really serious red wine that happens to be made in Rioja Alavesa. More concentrated than most. You could – just – drink it now with a hunk of meat but it seems to have a long way to go. Savoury, some yeast extract.

Artadi

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...
