    Winemaker Notes

    Intensely fragrant nose of spices, dried herbs, olives and dark fruit. Plushly textured tannins give richness and length to the finish.

    Estate vineyards located between 2,300 and 3,300 feet above sea level on poor, sandy soils rich in limestone. Vineyards are dry-farmed, without the use of pesticides or herbicides, and the grapes are hand harvested. The wine ferments in stainless steel and then ages for 12 months in French oak barrels.

    Blend: 85% Garnacha Tintorera, 15% Monastrell

    Atalaya, Spain
    Atalaya Atalaya Vineyards Winery Image
    Bodegas Atalaya was founded in 2007 by the Gil Family with the focus on producing wines from Garnacha Tintorera and Monastrell, the area’s most emblematic grape varieties. Since the first vintage, the goal has been to reflect the character and genuine essence of the land and the grape.

    The winery and vineyards are located in the eastern part of Albacete, between Valencia, Alicante and Murcia, a transitional zone between the Castillian meseta (plateau) and the Mediterranean Sea. The vineyards are located on poor soils, rich in limestone, at an altitude of 2300-3300 ft. The area has a continental climate with very low rainfall (less than 14 inches/year) which creates the perfect conditions to keep yields low, lending to high quality fruit with great concentration of color and flavor. The vineyards are all dry farmed without the use of pesticides or herbicides.

    The Moors gave it the name, ‘Manxa,’ which fittingly means ‘parched earth.’ La Mancha, the largest wine producing region in all of Spain, is one of its hottest and driest. Sturdy and drought-resistant white varieietes like Airen, Viura and Verdejo thrive in this environment.

    With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World, experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a variety that creates a fruity and full-bodied wine would do well combined with one that is naturally high in acidity and tannins. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
