Rioja Finca de los Locos, Bodegas Artuke, Bodegas Artuke
Poster child for new-wave of Spanish Rioja, bodegas Artuke are proving that great Rioja is made in the vineyards, and not produced in the winery.
These wines are full of vibrant fruit - we get focused, pure red-fruit character, with lots of pretty detail. On the palate its a more serious affair, with lovely structure, fine-grained tannins and supreme elegance. Theres a touch of oak adding just a dash of complexity, but its completely finessed into the wine - think of it as judicious seasoning to the perfect fruit.
Los Locos is produced from a single vineyard in Rioja Alevesa (the highest, coolest, part of Rioja), where the Soils are gravel and sand over limestone. 80% Tempranillo with 18% Graciano and 2% Viura. The wine is in conversion to Organics and will be certified from the 2021 vintage.
Great service and excellent wines
Excellent service and excellent wines. I wanted a selection of six wines and asked Peckham Cellars to make the choice for me based on a price range. The wines were all superb and unique in that they were from small suppliers that I personally would have no knowledge of. If you want something different at your next dinner / party then I can't recommend these guys enough.
Super-speedy delivery! My wines arrived safe and sound in fully recyclable packaging. A real bonus. Website has such a great selection it was hard to choose.
I placed my order online from…Melbourne
I placed my order online from Melbourne Australia and the delivery of my birthday gift to a friend in London happened smoothly, quickly and well presented. Big thanks to the team at Peckham Cellars
Nice wine. Easy and efficient
Great for sending to friends as gifts/congratulations. You can include a message with the wine, so ideal really. Fun range of interesting wines.
