Characteristics of Atalaya

La Atalaya is a red wine from the Almansa Region. It is produced by the Atalaya winery, which belongs to the group Orowines by Jorge Ordoñez.

La Atalaya is produced using two types of grapes: Garnacha Tintorera, a grape which is native to the area; and Monastrell. The grapes come from vineyards planeted between 700-1000 metres above sea level on soil composed of sands and limestone.

As for the processing, the wine then undergoes a maceration-fermentation in stainless-steel tanks for 20 days at controlled temperaturas of 25ºC.

After this, the wine then ages in french oak barrels for 12 months.

Alcohol: 15.5%
Serve at 15ºC
Pairing
Roasted lamb, Iberian ham, Roasts, Stews, Sheep cheese, Game animals

Tasting notes Atalaya

Sight Intense cherry red colour with high robe. Clean and bright wine with elegant tears. Nose Intense aromas. In the foreground the wooden and elegant toasted notes dominate on the aromas of red fruits and ripe berries. When it opens up, the fruit gains in expressivity and intensity, accompanied by mild spices, subtle herbs and hints of flowers.
Taste Intense, sweet and fresh. It has a good silky, fleshy, dry and very tasty mid palate, plenty of fruit and elegant wooden notes in the foreground. It shows a very good acidity and lively and pleasant tannin. Its long and lingering finish leaves very pleasant sensations full of fruit and vegetables. A very nice, different wine. A pleasure!
Sight Intense cherry red colour with high robe and good tears. Nose Intense and complex aromas in which the balanced notes of very ripe fruit are harmoniously displayed along with the strong notes of wood and toasted. When it opens up, subtle and seductive herbal notes and subtle spicy touches are noticed.
Taste Very sweet and powerful red wine. Glyceric and silky mid palate in which strong and polished tannins are noticed. Balanced acidity that gives a good freshness to the wine. Long lingering finish with an aftertaste of herbs. A very nice but different wine. A pleasure!

Reviews

D.O. Almansa

Winery Atalaya

The DO. Almansa region is located between the lands of Levant and the La Mancha plains and is known for their cultivation of two robust grape varieties: Monastrell and Garnacha Tintorera. Taking advantage of intense cold winters, a reasoned vintage and modern technology has resulted in wines with finesse and nuances very different to the hardy, concentrated, high alcohol and bulk produced wines that the region was formally known for.
