Línea Kármán Rioja Tinto, DOCa Rioja 2022


Gómez Cruzado

Lovely juicy and unoaked style of Rioja from old bush vine fruit, packaged with a distinctive contemporary label. Though 2022 was a warm vintage, this wine has been tamed to a very moderate 13.5% which aids in the fresh and deliciously drinkable style.

Meet the producer

The Gómez Cruzado winery dates back to 1886 when Angel Gómez de Arteche started to produce and bottle his...



The fruit is predominantly old bush vine Garnacha, with some additional Tempranillo. The fruit is cultivated in Rioja's Cárdenas river valley. This is a cool climate zone with deep, reddish soil of clay and iron, at the foot of the Sierra de la Demanda mountains. Bunches are destemmed, but not crushed, before fermentation takes place in stainless steel using native yeasts. There is minimal pumping over and a short maceration period. The wine ages for four months on lees in tank before bottling.

Tasting notes

Aromas of bright bramble fruit leading to a palate with crunchy wild berries and appealing black pepper notes. Supple tannins balanced by fresh acidity.
