AGING
10 months in French oak barrels.
Bodegas Ateca has its headquarters in the village of Ateca,
in the province of Zaragoza, fourteen Km away from
Calatayud. Old vines of Garnacha are planted on the hillsides
at about 3,000 ft above sea level. There is a range of soil
types throughout the region, however most vineyards could
be described as having gravely clay loams. The clay is at
depth and allows for the vines to obtain moisture and be dry
grown even though there is very little rainfall in the region.
After fermentation process the wine stayed for 10 months in
barrels.
Rich morello cherry and plum flavors are accented by mint,
orange peel and sassafras notes in this expressive red, which
has soft tannins, juicy acidity and smoky finish.

Region Description

Originally from Spain, this grape comes in both red-wine and white-wine varieties and is often associated with France’s southern Rhone Valley. The Grenache grape does well in hot, dry regions, and its strong stalk makes it well suited for windy conditions. It ripens with very high sugar levels and can produce wines with high alcohol content. Grenache wines are sweet, fruity, and very low in tannins. They are usually lacking in color, except in growing areas where yields are low. In Spain Grenache is widely planted in Navarra as well as in many of the hotter areas of the country. In southern France Grenache is widely cultivated in the areas around Languedoc- RoussillonRousellon, Provence, and the southern Rhone. It is also extensively grown in Algeria, Australia, Corsica, Israel, Morocco, Sardinia and California's central valley. Red Grenache wines are usually blended with other varieties: trempranillo in Spain and cinsaut and carignan in France. It’s the primary grape in chateauneuf-du-pape as well as in several rose wines.
