Winemaker Notes

Laya is a red wine from the the D.O. Almansa and produced by the Atlaya Winery. The winery is part of the Gil Family Estates group which ownes other known winerys such as the Juan Gil winery.

Laya is a blend of 2 grape varieties, Garnacha Tintorera and Monastrell. The grapes come from the wineries own vineyards that lie at an altitude of 700-1000 metres above sea level, with limestone soils. The climate of the local area has a low level of rainfall.

The vinification process begins with the maceration of the grape before fermentation. The two grape varieties ferment seperately in stainless steel tanks for 15days at a controlled temperature of 25ºC. Following this, Laya then undergoes a short ageing process of 4 months in French Oak barrels.

Laya is a young red wine, yet previous vintages have achieved good marks from international critics. This, coupled with the low price, is what makes it such an attractive wine from a reletively unknown region.
