Product Description
Details

The prestigious Dominio de Atauta winery presents the new vintage of Parada de Atauta. A purebred Ribera del Duero, this Spanish red wine is made from 80 to 100-years-old Tinta Fina vines, planted on sandy and pebblestone soils located at an altitude of 900 to 1000 metres above sea level.

Harvest took place during October. The grapes were destemmed and then cold-soaked and fermented in stainless steel and concrete tanks. Gently filtered, the wine was subsequently aged in 225-litre French oak barrels, one-fourth of which were new, for over a period of 14 months.

Finally, this red wine from Ribera del Duero was clarified with egg whites before its bottling.

Drink Parada de Atauta 2016 over the next 8 years.

We strongly suggest that you decant it for 30 minutes before you drink it.

Additional Information
Appearance

The wine Parada de Atauta has an intense, bright, high cherry-coloured robe with some claret tinges and a violet rim.

Nose

Loads of red and black fruit, nuanced by wooden notes and some spicy remembrances. Deep and terroir-oriented, this old-vines Tinta Fina also exhibits some hints of coffee, cocoa, tobacco and balsam.

Palate

Powerful, not overpowering. Fruit notes are very fresh and show great purity, enlivened by well-defined notes of spices, an intimation of wet earth and some notes of underbush. This wine by Dominio de Atauta has some lively tannins, a mark of a long life, and long, complex finish.

Our personal opinion

Smooth, intense and well-crafted, Parada de Atauta 2016 will pair beautifully with a hearty lamb stew.
