Artero Reserva 2012

La Mancha, Spain

Buy Now:

A sumptuous, large-framed three grape blend that sees sixteen months of ageing in high-quality American (80%) and French (20%) oak. Big aromas of spiced plum and coffee, with a smooth, lustrous wash of dark chocolate, blackberry and vanilla. Grippy tannins and a dry, savoury finish.
Drink with hearty, savoury dishes like meat-stuffed red peppers or meatballs.
La Mancha is the world's biggest single delimited wine region, encompassing a jaw-dropping 30,000km². Located 60km SE of Madrid, the extent of its DO-classified vineyards alone exceeds that of all of Australia's combined! Its specialty used to be a pale but strong red wine that was actually made with white grape Airén tinted with red juice. But since the 1990s the trend has been to make 'proper' reds, mostly from Cencibel / Tempranillo.
Artero is named after the street where the founder of Bodegas Muñoz, Blas Muñoz García de la Rosa, was born and raised. The whole estate comprises 400 ha of gnarled old vines, with an average age of 40 years. The third generation of the family lives on site, above the 17th-century cellar where the best of Muñoz wines enjoy a “calm, transcendental” period of maturation.
