Atalier is another outstanding new project from Raúl Pérez under the Denomination of Origin Rias Baixas. Another winner that also counts with the collaboration of his friend Rodri Méndez. The grapes come from two different coastal sites of very old Albariño vines in the Cambados area, Salnés del Valley, located at a short distance from the sea, growing in a mixture of sandy and granite soil. The harvest takes place at least two weeks later than usual. Fermentation and ageing take place in a large old French oak Foudres in contact with its fine lees for 12 months. The Atalier bears the telltale stamp of Raul’s wines and could be reminiscent of his big brother Sketch.
Raúl Pérez is regarded as among the most talented and innovative winemakers, almost a legend within the Spanish wine making world and abroad. The collaboration with other wine-makers and wineries has also proved a great success. He works with the autochthonous varietals of the area. He makes amazing wines in different appellations in Galicia and elsewhere, always small and selected productions. To get hold of his wines is not that easy as they are probably one of the most sought-after.
Tasting notes: Ripeness and flavor, rich texture, green fruits, white peach, white flowers, marked salinity and remarkable acidity.
