Characteristics of Laya
Laya is a red wine from the the D.O. Almansa andproduced by the Atlaya Winery. The winery is part of theGil 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.

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.
Bodegas Atalaya is a new project by Gil Family Estates, also in collaboration with the López family from Pilar de la Horadada. The winery is located in D.O.P. Almansa, east of the province of Albacete, between the plateau and the Mediterranean Sea. The first harvest of Bodegas Atalaya took place in 2007. Since then, they have progressed firmly to improve the facilities and do research on the production with the varieties Garnacha Tintorera (Red Grenache) and Monastrell.
