Parada de Atauta, Ribera del Duero 2016
This release from Dominio de Atauta estate is from their younger vineyards – but still around 60 years old! Fine and complex, it expresses the rugged and high altitude terrain of their estate in eastern Ribera del Duero.
The 100% Tinto Fino (Tempranillo) grapes are sourced from the Dominio de Atauta estate, which sits at around 1,000m altitude. The wine is aged for 12 months in French oak.
A warm, spicy, open nose with intense black fruit, juicy black cherries, mocha and baked earth characters. The palate is fine with good structure, concentrated blackcurrant fruit, cedar and minerality with perfumed violets to the finish.
Match with grilled meats & roasted vegetables.
Grape Variety: Tempranillo
