Atlas The Spaniard 2015
6 PACK BUY. Bright, juicy Tempranillo from boutique producer in Clare Valley.
Winemaker Adam Barton after working for Scarpantoni (McLaren Vale), Rolf Binder (Barossa), Wynns Coonawarra Estate and iconic Bonny Doon (California) wasted no time to complete a winemaking degree at Adelaide University. Atlas Wines began on a 26-acre block of land, a vineyard planted with Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon, on the eastern slopes of the Clare Valley. The year was 2007. Adam Barton and Amy Lane made an investment in Clare and an investment in their future. Their vision for Atlas was pretty simple: to produce great wine from the highest-quality fruit from vineyards with exceptional provenance. Adam has come to understand the complexity and diversity of the Clare Valley, and how the unique characteristics of different sites produce fruit with distinctive qualities. It’s these qualities that they have sought to express through the wines they have made. As such, the Atlas house style is a carefully composed mosaic of the region. It is a true boutique producer. The red wines, sourced primarily from White Hut in the north and Leasingham in the south, are elegant yet powerful, and well structured; the whites, sourced from several sites at Watervale are finely structured, aromatic and pure.
Not suprising James Halliday rated them a 5 Red Star Winery saying “...The quality of the wines is extraordinarily good and extraordinarily consistent.”
This blend of Tempranillo, Mouvedre and grenache from select growers from famed sub region of Leasigham in the Clare Valley is bright, juicy and delicious from an exceptional growing season.
90 points, James Halliday’s Australian Wine Companion 2018 “A blend of tempranillo, mourvedre and grenache from three vineyards at Leasingham. Distinctly savoury/sour cherry flavours in a textural play, waiting for the tapas to arrive.”
