Winemaker Notes

Clear, bright, deep red almost black color with elegant red notes. A nose of violets, black fruits, some mint, graphite, and chocolate. Very complex and elegant. On the palate it is sweet and gentle at first, dark fruit flavors explode with fine tannins. Long finish.

The Wine Advocate

The 2006 Marguery Atento Malbec spent 18 months in new French oak. Purple/black-colored, it offers up a brooding bouquet of pain grille, asphalt, violets, spice box, black cherry, and plum. This leads to a dense, layered, powerful Malbec with ripe black fruit, plenty of fine-grained tannin, and a lengthy, pure finish. Give it 3-4 years to blossom and drink it from 2013 to 2026.

Familia Marguery's Atento cuvee is a barrel selection of the winery’s top lots made only in the finest vintages.

Familia Marguery
Marguery Family Winery was founded in early 2000 by its current partners, Alejandro and Guillermo Donnerstag Marguery.

In Bodega Familia Marguery produce high quality wines in limited quantities, using the latest technology with a focus on Malbec. =We firmly believe our mission is to try to preserve what has been achieved in the cellar in the vineyard, without masking, without excessive intervention in order to show and the character of the fruit and the region of origin.

Our first harvest was in 2000 and began operating in the market in 2002.

Known for bold reds, crisp whites, and distinctive sparkling and fortified wines, Spain has embraced international varieties and wine styles while continuing to place the primary emphasis upon its own native grapes. Though the country’s climate is diverse, it is generally warm to hot. In the center of the country lies a vast, dry plateau known as the Meseta Central, characterized by extremely hot summers and frequent drought. Because of its location on the Iberian Peninsula, many of Spain’s wine regions are located on or near the milder coast, either of the Bay of Biscay to the north, the Atlantic Ocean to the northwest, or the Mediterranean sea to the south and east. Each of these regions has its own unique soil, climate, and topography, as well as principal grape varieties.

In the cool, damp northwest region of Galicia, refreshing white Albariño and Verdejo dominate, though elsewhere the most popular wines are generally red. Rioja is Spain’s best-known region, where earthy, age-worthy reds are made from Tempranillo and Garnacha (Grenache), as well as rich, nutty whites from Viura. Ribera del Duero produces opulent, fruity, top-quality wines from almost exclusively Tempranillo. Priorat, a sub-region of Catalonia, blends Garnacha with Cariñena (Carignan) to make bold, full-bodied wines with a hint of earthiness. Catalonia is also home to Cava, a sparkling wine made in the traditional method but from indigenous varieties. Sherry, Spain’s famous fortified wine, is produced in a wide range of styles from dry to lusciously sweet at the country’s southern tip in Jerez. Since the 1990s, international varieties like Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Sauvignon Blanc have been steadily increasing in importance in several regions.

Other White Blends

View all wine

With hundreds of white 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 create complex wines with many different layers of flavors and aromas, or to create more balanced wines. For example, a variety that is soft and full-bodied may be combined with one that is lighter with naturally high acidity. 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.
