Bodegas Atalaya La Atalaya del Camino 2016
Made by the Juan Gil family who also make the famous Clio red in Jumilla, Bodegas Atalaya 'La Atalaya' is an old vine red made from 65 year vines with Garnacha, Monastrell and Alicante Bouschet. The yields are incredibly low, with only 2 ½ tons per acre. Big, dense, chewy and smooth, this delicious bargain red has black fruit, olive and mocha notes in the nose and mouth. Founded in 1916, Juan Gil is celebrating their 100th anniversary, and continues to show the world how great, authentic wines are made with love, passion and pride!!!
