"Impressive, rich, dark-cherry and blackberry aromas with nicely cut oak influence. The palate has a sleek, smooth-honed feel with such impressive freshness and depth. Stunning, vibrant finish. 100% tempranillo from several plots around Laguardia. Drink or hold."

"The red 2017 Viñas de Gaín was marked by the frost of the 28th of April, when they lost 20% to 25% of the crop, but as I've seen in other wineries, the wines are much better than expected, especially when it comes to freshness, given the low yields and very early harvest. This fermented in oak vats and matured in oak barrels for eight months. It's fresh and tender, with ripeness but without excess, quite fruit-driven. It has a velvety texture and good quality tannins. An approachable Viñas de Gaín. 80,000 bottles produced (down from 120,000 the previous vintage). It was bottled in April 2019."

The Wine
Made from twenty-to-thirty year-old selected vineyards, this wine can be be enjoyed today, or one may rediscover it tomorrow. With a background of red fruit, the seasoned notes perfectly assemble and are highlighted with notes of oak aging.

Made from twenty-to-thirty year-old selected vineyards located in the plots of San Martín, Las Ventas, Paulejas, San Julián, Santa Águeda, Castejones, Majadales, Ribaltayo Viejo, etc.

The Estate
Located in the heart of Álava, Artadi owns 83 hectares of vineyards planted in soils with a wide geological diversity. Clay, gravel and limestone primarily compose this particular balance of nutrient-poor soils with varying microclimates. These unique vineyard sites give singularity to the wines, whose most notable qualities are transparency of fruit and finesse of tannins.
