Product Description

As usual, the new vintage of Atteca is a varietal Grenache. It is produced by the Ateca winery, a brand of the Juan Gil Family.

Born in the harsh northern Spanish region of Calatayud, Aragón, this Spanish red wine was crafted from very old vines, some of which are 100 years of age. They are planted on slate soils at altitudes between 700 and 1,000 metres above sea level.

The grapes were fermented in stainless steel tanks and subsequently transferred into French oak barrels. After that, Atteca 2018 was aged for 12 months in French oak barrels.

We strongly suggest that you decant this old-vines Grenache at least 30 minutes before you drink it.

Additional Information
Additional Information

The red wine Atteca has a clean, bright, high cherry-coloured robe with some bluish glints and a violet rim.


Deep and intense, this old-vines Grenache from Calatayud begins with some smokey and creamy notes, followed by intense aromas of blueberries and raspberries, some hints of tobacoo and roasted coffee, as well as some mineral undertones and aromas of balsam and resin.


Smooth and well-balanced, this red wine from Bodega Ateca is fruit-driven and balanced, with well-integrated oak and a rewarding freshness. Juicy red fruit, notions of cocoa and sensations of dry earth over an underlying layer of minerality. Creamy and fresh, with ripe tannins, good acidity and a long, persistent finish.

Our personal opinion

Spicy, deep and fruit-forward, Atteca 2018 is an exceptional value from Aragón.
