Review:

The Alicante Bouschet is one of the few Grenache grape varieties with red flesh. It is well-known that most red varieties have white flesh but there are a few exceptions to this rule, where we can find strongly-coloured grapes which produce wines of an unusual intensity.

The Alicante Bouschet and Mourvèdre grapes used to make La Atalaya del Camino are collected from vineyards in the Almansa region at altitudes between 700 and 1,000 metres. The sandy soils there with a strong presence of limestone, together with the huge temperature differences found at these heights, ensure the grape harvest is of exceptional quality. The two varieties of grape are fermented separately to give a wine with a great complexity which, after twelve months in French oak barrels, displays a striking character.

It is virtually impossible to see anything through a glass of La Atalaya del Camino. The intense character of the grapes produce such an opacity and viscosity that the wine seems to want to stay in the glass. It gives off intense aromas of liquorice and ripe black fruit, with tones of anise, blue flowers, black olives and Indian ink. If you close your eyes, it's easy to imagine blackberry jam, violets, fresh mint leaves, and even a hint of a forest with Herbes de Provence and pine resin. This wine is silky on the palate from start to finish, with strong but pleasant tannins.

Give this wine time, decant it and swirl it around your glass. On aeration, its sensations grow and its aromas multiply, placing this old-vine red wine among the most original wines of the Iberian Peninsula. This wine can also be kept for several years and will continue to improve.

Have now placed my second order for this wine as I was so impressed with my first order. This is a very flavoursome and smooth wine...quite sophisticated! For the price point this is an excellent value wine...highly recommended.

A lovely Monastrell, full and fruity on a layer of liquorice and tobacco. However, it is not a "BBQ wine"; it has an element of finesse that should be appreciated.

Für diejenigen die es etwas kräftiger mögen. Tiefdunkelrote Farbe und dank des 12-monatigen Ausbaus in Barriques aus französischer Eiche komplex im Geschmack....blablabla...selber probieren schmeckt besser. Grandioses Preis-Leistungsverhältnis!
