Details

Enjoying a Spanish white wine aged in oak is not an unusual thing. However, drinking a wine aged in three different types of wooden barrels is something rather less common.

Produced by Parató Vinícola, Àtica is an organic white wine from Penedès made from Xarel.lo, Macabeo, and 37% Chardonnay.

First the grapes were cold-soaked and then naturally drawn-off. After that, Àtica Blanc 2017 began fermentation in stainless steel tanks and finished the process in Acacia barrels and in American and French oak barrels.

Finally, this white wine from Penedès completed half of the malolactic fermentation and was aged for 4 months in the barrels.

Drink until 2022.

Additional Information

Appearance

The organic white wine Ática Blanc has a golden colour with some greenish tinges.

Nose

Mildly exuberant, this organic white wine from Penedès shows some spicy nuances, such as vanilla and cinnamon, combined with remembrances of baked apples, melon, undergrowth and fennel.

Palate

Palate-coating and savoury, this white wine by Parató is fresh and lively, with a crisp acidity. Juicy notes of spices, white fruit and white flowers and remembrances of citrus and aromatic herbs. Àtica has a medium finish with remembrances of mineral and some smokey traces.

Our personal opinion

A high-quality value, Àtica Blanc 2017 successfully balances Mediterranean character and wood ageing.

    This was new to me. Quite enjoyable, particularly under the Mediterraneansunshine.

    Good white wine. Creamy, but not too much, and with the punch provided by xarel.lo.
