Red Wine Parada de Atauta 2018
Availability: In stock
The prestigious Dominio de Atauta winery presents the new vintage of Parada de Atauta.
The grapes were picked by hand, destemmed and then cold-soaked and fermented in stainless steel and concrete tanks. The malolactic fermentation of this Crianza red wine took place in oak vats.
After that, Parada de Atauta 2018 was aged in 225-litre French oak barrels, one-fourth of which were new, for over a period of 14 months. Finally, it was clarified with egg whites before bottling.
We suggest that you decant this red wine from Ribera del Duero for 30 minutes before you drink it.
The wine Parada de Atauta is medium purple with some burgundy reflections and a violet rim.
Loads of red and black fruit, nuanced by wooden notes and some spicy remembrances. Deep and terroir-oriented, this old-vines Tinto Fino also exhibits some hints of coffee, cocoa, tobacco and balsam.
Powerful, not overpowering. Fruit notes are fresh and of great purity, enlivened by well-defined notes of spices, an intimation of wet earth and some notes of underbrush. This wine from Dominio de Atauta has some lively tannins and a long, complex finish.
