Characteristics of Laya

Laya is a red wine from the the D.O. Almansa and produced by the Atlaya Winery. The winery is part of the Gil Family Estates group which ownes other known winerys such as the Juan Gil winery.

Laya is a blend of 2 grape varieties, Garnacha Tintorera and Monastrall. The grapes come from the wineries own vineyards that lie at an altitude of 700-1000 metres above sea level, with limestone soils. The climate of the local area has a low level of rainfall.

The vinification process begins with the maceration of the grape before fermentation. The two grape varieties ferment seperately in stainless steel tanks for 15days at a controlled temperature of 25ºC. Following this, Laya then undergoes a short ageing process of 4 months in French Oak barrels.

Laya is a young red wine, yet previous vintages have achieved good marks from international critics. This, coupled with the low price, is what makes it such an attractive wine from a reletively unknown region.
Alcohol: 14.5%

Tasting notes Laya

Sight Dark cherry colour with violet reflections. Very bright. Nose In the nose, notes of ripe red and black fruit stand out along with floral notes. Toasted and spicy nuances complete the set. Taste In the mouth, this Spanish wine is powerful but balanced, unctuous on the palate with a long finish and remarkable persistence. This red wine is excellent value for money.

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.
