Wine Description

(2015 Vintage) Bodegas Ateca is a joint project between the Gil winery family and the well-known importer, Jorge Ordonez. The bodegas is located in the Calatayud region of northeastern Spain. The majority of the vineyards are grown in highly permeable and healthy soils with a high amount of limestone. The soils are rocky, loose and low in nutrients. The climate in this region varies vastly from day to night, allowing for more balance between acidity and alcohol. The main varietal here is Garnacha grown from old-vines up to 80-100 years old.

    (2015 Vintage) "This shows ripe red and black fruit such as cherries, plums and currants with violet and earth undertones. Medium body, soft and light tannins and a medium, fresh and earthy finish. From 100% garnacha. Drink now." James Suckling, 91 Points
