Atteca (Calatayud)

Calatayud is another region which has sneaked up to the forefront of Spanish winemaking over the last decade or so. The main reason is the abundance of old vine Garnacha vines grown at altitudes of around 550m - 800m. These low-yielding vines produce very concentrated grapes from the poor soils and the abundance of sunshine. These wines can easily reach 15% alcohol and when paired with toasty new oak, can be amongst the most concentrated in Spain.  Yet Garnacha is not a tannic variety, so expect bright floral notes and warmth, rather than dense structure.

Atteca is a very ripe wine with an amazing amount of lifted violetty notes on the nose.  The wine has benefited from its 10 month stay in French and American oak.  Whilst this oak is noticeable, it pairs well with the ripe fruit.
