Winemaking Process

Artuke K4 is a wine made from Tempranillo and Graciano, from a vineyard that was planted in the 50s at the foothills of Sierra Cantabria. It is located at 650 metres of altitude on clayey-calcareous soils with fragments of disintegrated rock. They are manually harvested and placed in boxes. The grapes are selected in the vineyards. The production process is the classic one, without stems. This wine is aged for 10 -14 months in semi-new 500 and 600-litre French oak barrels.  


Tasting Note

Artuke K4 is a mature, powerful and elegant wine. On the nose, the aromas of black and red fruit stand out on, with light flowery notes on a spicy and mineral background. In the mouth, it is ample and unctuous, with good acidity and a fresh and long finish.


Pairing

Stews, Steak tartare, Cold meat, Roasts, Red meat with sauce.
