80 to 120 Year Old Wine!
How do they produce a wine in Spain from 80 to 120 year old vines, that only produce one ton of fruit per Hectare of land. Bottle it, Label it, and Ship it to the United States and only charge us $15.99 per bottle. This is a super wine for that price. I actually tasted another Grenache produced here in the United States this past week, that was $30.00 per bottle. Atteca was just as good if not better to drink right now.
The Spaniards have a magical way of producing high end, quality wines for a fraction of what they would cost here in the US or other European countries for that matter. I love reaching out for 2 of my favorite varietals, Tempranillo or Grenache from Spain. Well produced ones should cost you in the range of $12 to 20 dollars a bottle. What wino wouldn't want to pay under $20.00 bucks for a great wine that is ready to drink the minute you pop the cork.
Atteca has a beautiful dark purple color in the glass. Heavy blueberry and stone on the nose with a bit of graphite. Dark fruit like blackberries and plums come out on the palate with just the right amounts of wood.
This is an absolute perfect wine for sweet pulled pork BBQ or beef brisket. With July 4th being tomorrow, a match made in heaven. I tasted and bought this wine at Vinatero Wine Shop.
Give it a Try!
