Characteristics of Dominio de Atauta

Dominio de Atauta is a red wine from the Ribera del Duero produced by the Dominio de Atauta winery. The winery is located in the Valley of Atauta (Soria), on the eastern edge of Ribera del Duero.

Dominio de Atauta is 100% made from Tinto Fino. The grapes come from vineyards planted at 950 and 1000m altitude on limestone sand soils.

Due to the high altitude of the vineyard and constant winds, grapes are cleaned and dried. In addition, during the weeks of harvesting, the temperature fluctuations between day and night are around 25 ° C, which favours a good ripening of the grapes.

For processing Dominio de Atauta passes a traditional winemaking. After maceration and fermentation, the wine is aged for 18 months in French oak barrels.

Serve at 16.0ºC
Contains sulphites
We recommend decanting before consumption

Tasting notes Dominio de Atauta

After a dry winter, spring came loaded with rain. Thankfully, this water was stored, since it was much needed during the extremely dry summer. The low temperatures during spring delayed the sprouting of the vines, which led the growth cycle to start with delay. However, this delay was offset thanks to the high temperatures recorded in July and August, to the point of delaying ripening in those younger vineyards. The 2016 vintage beat the production record of the 2014 vintage. And not only in production, but also in quality due to the excellent weather conditions and the excellent health of the vineyards. The wines from this vintage offer a lot of volume, with a good capacity to face the passing of time, with roundness and spectacular tannins. A harvest reminiscent of those of the late 80s and early 90s.
The 2015 vintage started with a winter that had good groundwater reserves. The spring was warm and dry until well into the month of June, when there were intense rainfall at the beginning of the blooming. A summer with some well spread out storms gave way to a very dry autumn. The harvest was slightly ahead of the usual dates, but the analytical and organoleptic features, and the balance of the berries, were ideal. Thus enabled the harvest to take place at the optimal ripening time. The wines from this vintage, which was classified as excellent, have a good colour intensity, significant fruity notes on the nose and a high tannic potential in the mouth, with sweet tannins that indicate the good phenolic ripening of the berries. A vintage reminiscent of the exceptional 2005 vintage.
After the withering in a mild winter, the warm start of spring brought sprouting forward by almost 10 days. The summer, which was quite cool and dry, enabled the good evolution of the growth cycle and a balanced ripening. This was a vintage without setbacks. Worth mentioning is the high production of this vintage due to good climatic behaviour during the harvest. The wines from this vintage have great colour intensity, and a high fruity expression on the nose and in the mouth. Their balance and tannic potential stand out; these features show us the great potential to produce great wines for ageing, and for lighter and fruitier productions.
This was a complicated year. Although the sprouting of the vines was slightly early, the low temperatures recorded during the spring delayed the growth cycle, which no longer recovered in the summer, despite having a warm month of July. The harvest was carried out at a fast pace, and with the extra effort of the viticulturers, who discarded the fruit that did not meet the optimal conditions. This way, they made sure that they avoided the probable effect of the botrytis attacks due to the rains they had around this time. The wines from this vintage, rated as a good one, offer good colour intensity, great fruit expression and a lot of freshness.
Regarding climate, the 2012 vintage started with the sprouting of the vines in the beginning of spring with the cooler temperatures. In May, generous rainfall and high temperatures gave way to a generalised drought throughout the summer. Luckily, the rains started at the onset of the ripening. The precipitations at the beginning of October, and the nice temperatures during the harvest, resulted in the a uniform phenolic ripening. The wines from this vintage have a good alcoholic strength, balanced by moderate levels of acidity, with a good colour and phenolic intensity, and a suitable level of tannins, all important features for a perfect ageing.
Sight Cherry red with violet rim. Nose Intensely aromatic. Predominance of red fruit with roasted and floral notes. Taste Fresh and fleshy entry. Its passage is silky and fruity with toasted and red fruit memories. It is full-bodied, ripe tannins and good acidity. Medium-long finish. Balanced.
Sight Intense cherry red colour. Nose In the nose this wine is elegant and complex. Aromas of fruit and fine cocoa. Taste Tasty and powerful in the mouth. A very fleshy wine, with smoky sensations felt at retro-olfaction and dry but ripe tannins.
The 2009 vintage started with a winter of low temperatures, which gave way to a cool spring. A dry summer, with warm days and mild nights, and great temperature changes between day and night, led to very balanced, complex and concentrated grapes. As for climate, it was the perfect vintage. This influenced the health of the grapes, which was excellent. Therefore, the wines from this vintage have a good acidity, which is responsible for long-lived wines with a good structure. And generally, responsible for very fruity wines with fresh red fruit that stands out. One of the great vintages of this region.
Sight Dark cherry colour with garnet edges. Bright. Dense legs which stain the glass. Nose Intense and powerful aromas. The notes of refined wood give way to aromas of ripe red fruit, vanilla and cream which are noticed along with expressive notes of sweet spices on a good balsamic background. Taste Wide attack. Very tasty, meaty and silky mid palate with notes of fruit and wood and a certain smoothness that fill the mouth with many sensations. Well-integrated tannins and balanced acidity. Long and very persistent finish. A round and elegant wine.

Here, some of their wines are made from pre-phylloxera vineyards of Tinto Fino and some others from vines that are over 85 years old. Relying on this phyolosphy and adding an excellent human factor to the unique conditions of the terroir, the wines from Dominio de Atauta have managed to place themselves among the most renowned ones, within an outstanding Denomination of Origin like Ribera del Duero.
