Characteristics of Viridiana

Viridiana is a red wine from the Ribera del Duero D.O region produced by the Dominio de Atauta winery. This wine is made using only Tempranillo (100%) grapes.

The grapes used to make Viridiana come from vineyards aged between 20 and 30 years old that are planted at almost 900 metres above sea level, with a mixed soil containing sands and clay.

The region is home to a continental climate with strong Mediterranean influences. The winters are long and cold, whereas the summers are rather short.

Once the grapes are harvested and transported to the winery, the first phase of fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks in controlled temperatures of 26-28ºC.

The must then undergoes maolactic fermentation, again in tanks. Before being bottled and marketed, Viridiana is aged for 3 months in French oak barrels.

The Dominio de Atauta winery is located in the province of Soria. The winey, founded in 2000, is located at nearly 1000 metres above sea level and works on over 600 plots where they grow grapes for their products.

Tasting notes Viridiana

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.

Dominio de Atauta is a relatively new project. Since the beginning, its aim has been to express all the character of the Valley of Atauta, at 1,000 metres of altitude, in the province of Soria. 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.
