The sample I tasted from the 2016 La Condenada was the final blend, waiting to be bottled, and the nose was spectacular: flowers, wild herbs, wild berries, subtle earthiness, a spicy touch. It feels like the vineyard, which was semi-abandoned, is slowly recovering and is delivering better and better wines each vintage. It seems to have all the ingredients for a nice development in bottle. Very promising. They expect to fill 1,300 bottles in January 2018.

Artuke has started new projects in the last few years, and their portfolio will soon include two more single-vineyard wines, one from Baños de Ebro and the other one from Samaniego. In 2016 they also fermented a varietal Garnacha from the Alto Najerilla, a vintage with more acidity when they harvested earlier. The wines are more fluid, in search of the character and personality of each place—a change that occurred in 2013. In 2015 they suffered from hail, and in 2017 they had frost.
