During the tasting, Oxer Basteguieta will guide you in tasting this selection of wines to appreciate them in all their splendor.
We will start with Iraun, who owes his name to the Basque roots of the winemaker Oxer Basteguieta and which means “to last”. From the 1919 vineyards located in Elvillar, La Rioja Alavesa, on the nose it will bring us aromas of white fruit, citrus notes, sweet spices and a floral background. On the palate it shows an acidity and a magnificent minerality that gives it an incredibly long length. This wine has been awarded four times by Guía Peñín 2019, Robert Parker 2016, Tim Atkin MW Rioja 2017 Special Report and James Suckling 2016.
We will continue with Gunner, whose name honors the former owner of the vineyard, a gunner in the civil war and whom Oxer wanted to remember in gratitude for the utmost care of the vineyard. Also from the 1919 vineyards at Elvillar, this intense and lively wine reminds the nose of black and red fruit, with floral notes and sweet spices along with well-integrated wood, which adds complexity, together with a pleasantly fresh and acidity. a fine-grained tannin structure. In the mouth it reminds of black fruit, sweet spices, violets and a touch of leather.
Artillero has been recognized four times by Guía Peñin 2019, Robert Parker 2016, Tim Atkin MW Rioja 2017 Special Report and James Suckling 2016.
