Product Description
Details

The prestigious Dominio de Atauta winery presents the new vintage of Parada de Atauta.

A textbook Ribera del Duero, this Spanish red wine is made from 90 to 100-year-old Tinto Fino vines, planted in sandy and pebblestone soils at an altitude of 900 to 1000 metres above sea level.

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.

Additional Information
Appearance

The wine Parada de Atauta is medium purple with some burgundy reflections 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 Tinto Fino also exhibits some hints of coffee, cocoa, tobacco and balsam.

Palate

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.

Our personal opinion

Smooth, intense and well-crafted, Parada de Atauta 2018 will pair beautifully with a hearty lamb stew.
