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

From the deep and intense Rioja wines, or the dry and refreshing Ruedas, from Tempranillos to Verdejos, the range and quality of Spanish wines is always going to impress and fascinate. With several thousand years of traditions and expertise leading the way, Spanish wineries are currently producing some of the most flavorful and interesting wines to come out of Europe, striving to overcome the reputation problems the country suffered in the mid to late twentieth century. Despite being one of the largest producers of wine in the world, with billions of bottles being filled each year, Spanish wine producers are more interested in quality over quantity than ever before. The results of this are some truly world class wines rivaling even the finest produce of France in regards to balance, character and flavor, gaining new fans and enthusiasts every day.
