Professional Wine Reviews for Bodegas Atalaya La Atalaya Del Camino 2015

Rated 91 by Wine Advocate
Also a blend of Garnacha Tintorera with usually some 15% Monastrell, the 2015 La Atalaya del Camino was cropped from a wetter year than the average. From dry-farmed, head-pruned old vines, the grapes were fermented with neutral yeasts in stainless steel and aged in French barriques for one year. It was a gentle year for Garnacha Tintorera, and the reality is that they used a lot less Monastrell than the average. It has a Rhône-ish profile, with aromas of sun-dried tomatoes and black olives, an oily touch and plenty of aromatic herbs. This is ripe, as they need ripe fruit to avoid the harsh tannins that the grape can deliver if the fruit is not very ripe. This is juicy, concentrated and powerful and will surely be able to develop for a long time in bottle. I was quite surprised by this wine.

Winery Bodegas Atalaya

Country: Spain

For over two thousand years, Spain has been responsible for much of Europe's wine production, making the very best of native grape varietals, and more recently experimenting with and perfecting wines made from imported grapes. Of course, the region of La Rioja is renowned world-wide for the quality and characteristics of its wines, which benefit greatly from the warm, dry continental climate of the area, and the fertile soils of the Ebro river basin. However, there is far more to Spanish produce than the complex, aromatic and earthy red wine of this region, as a result of the vast range of wine making traditions and practices, and terrains and climatic conditions found across the country. The region Castilla y Leon produces some of Europe's finest white wines, and the sparkling wines of Cava and the sherries of Jerez are firm favorites for wine lovers around the world.
