Parada de Atauta, Ribera Del Duero, Tempranillo (6 Bottle Case)
This product is currently sold out.
Dominio de Atauta was established in 1999 by Miguel Sanchez, a Madrid wine merchant who realised the potential of the ancient vineyards, many pre-phylloxera, in this neglected part of the Ribera del Duero near Soria. Miguel brought in Bertrand Sourdais, a young winemaker from Chinon and passionate advocate of biodynamic viticulture and the principle of terroir, who oversees both vines and winemaking - this is a place where wine is truly made in the vineyard. Within a few years, Atauta has produced some of the most individual, complex and expressive wines in Ribera.
Parada de Atauta wine is a real stunner from the amazing Dominio de Atauta estate. 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. This award-winning wine is great with grilled meats and roasted vegetables.

Parada de Atauta 2017: “I was pretty amazed tasting the 2017 Parada de Atauta next to the 2018, as the two vintages do not follow the path of the wines from zones that were hit by the April frost in Ribera del Duero, which was not the case here. The cycle of the vine is slower here since it’s colder, and when frost happened, the plants were still dormant, so 2017 was a normal year. Despite the analytical data, which was very similar to the 2018, this wine feels fresher and finer, with more red fruit and finer tannins and very integrated oak despite having used some 20% new barrels for the élevage. 92+pts.” Luis Gutiérrez, The Wine Advocate (30th June 2021)
