Bodegas Ateca was founded in 2005 in the village of Ateca, located in Zaragoza province about 14 kilometres outside Calatayud. The winery is part of the Oro Wines project, set up by businessman Jorge Ordóñez, basically for the purpose of producing quality wines in different regions of Spain that are destined for the United States market. In line with other wineries belonging to the group, Ateca enjoys the services of an Antipodean oenologist, Australian Sarah Morris, who expertly handles tastes in New World wines and the developing tastes required by expanding markets.
Ateca owns 55 ha of old vineyards planted on slate soils on the nearby hillsides, with Garnacha being the predominant variety. Atteca 2009 is a fine example of the Garnacha grape grown on Aragonese soil: an excellent concentration of red fruit (raspberry) on the palate and a whiff of oiliness on the nose brought out by the slight greasiness of cocoa and the creaminess of fresh vanilla.
This wine’s palate is fruit-filled ecstasy, lusciously rich and rounded. Just a few seconds in the mouth is all it takes to appreciate this wondrous experience: an excellent freshness along with touches of graphite minerality.
Atteca - a right royal Garnacha!
