Atalaya Laya Red Blend.

2020 Atalaya Laya Red Blend....$9.49
70% Garnacha Tintorera, 30% Monastrell
The 2020 Laya is balanced, harmonious and serious, and the vintage seems to have absorbed the oak quite nicely. This is always produced with 70% Garnacha Tintorera and 30% Monastrell. It fermented in stainless steel vats with neutral yeasts, with malolactic in barrel, where the wine matured for four months. 360,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in March 2021.
