100% Garnacha Tintorera
Earth, underbrush, and mineral notes along with brooding black fruits inform this wine’s inviting bouquet. Dense and layered. Its 16% alcohol is in balance with the wine’s strapping personality and helps provide for a silky texture and a finish with no hard edges.
The Bodegas Atalaya Winery is a relatively new project within the Gil Family Group. It is located in the Almansa D.O, east of Albacete Province among Valencia, Alicante and Murcia, in the transit zone between the Castilian Plateau and the Mediterranean Sea. The winery and vineyards are located 3 kilometers north of Almansa at an altitude of 800 meters above sea level. The soils here consist mainly of limestone. The predominant grape varieties are Garnacha Tintorera, a variety native to the area, and Monastrell (also known as Mataró or Mourvèdre), from which the project produces its wines. The technical direction is provided by the Australian-born winemaker Frank Gonzales.
