ATALAYA / RED 2011
18 months in French oak barrels, 2/3 new, 1/3 in their second use. / Blend of a selection of small batches of Touriga Nacional grapes from vineyards by the Douro River, and native Douro grape varieties from old vines in high-altitude vineyards, such as Tinta Roriz, Touriga Franca, Tinta Francisca and others. / Schist soils in the Upper Douro.
Complex, highly concentrated aroma, including blackberry, hints of liquorice, spices, violets, bergamot and rock rose, balanced with very elegant notes of French oak. Long and full, the fruit is evident in the finish. Very ripe, smooth and firm tannins, fresh and extremely elegant, promising excellent ageing in the bottle.
Enjoy with meat and game dishes, cured cheeses or simply with a cigar.
