Brand Bodegas Atalaya
Alcohol/vol 14.5%
This wine combines complexity, structure and an intense covered cherry red color. Elegant, fresh and complex nose where ripe fruit and floral notes can be appreciated. Pleasant and fresh on the palate, balanced and with sweet but youthful tannins, unctuous and enveloping, with an original and interesting mid-palate and a long finish.

The 2021 Laya was produced with 70% Garnacha Tintorera and 30% Monastrell, looking for a fruit-driven and easy to drink red with 14.5% alcohol, ripe fruit and a soft texture. 2021 was warmer than the average but with some cold spells, especially the one in January called Filomena that brought lots of snow, despite which, it was also a dry year and they got up to 40% less grapes. This fermented in stainless steel vats with neutral yeasts, with malolactic in barrel, where the wine matured for four months. This shows some toasty oak, but it might be because it's too young and very recently bottled. But vintages seem to take oak differently; they believe this will show as integrated as the 2020. Time will tell. In any case, it's a wine for the short term, and it's very good for what it is. 360,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in March 2022.
