AR­TUKE 2016

Epicure - - CELLAR CHOICE -

A fas­ci­nat­ing red wine in car­bonic mac­er­a­tion style comes from La Rioja, where 95% Tem­pranillo is joined by 5% Viura, a white wine. This ag­ile, sup­ple tip­ple has clean lay­ers of cherry over­laid with min­eral notes, and high aro­matic ap­peal. Ar­tuke is a small fam­ily win­ery with 16 hectares, who is re­vis­it­ing his­tor­i­cal meth­ods, such as the whole grape mac­er­a­tion. This would work with a strong dish like wok-fried crus­taceans or seafood paella, rather than del­i­cate raw seafood. $32 from Vi­nos Ex­clu­sivos
