About This Wine:
It’s possible that a potentially great biologist in the making was lost, but it’s indisputable that the winemaking community of Castilla-La Mancha gained a magnificent vintner when Soledad López decided to work as a laboratory assistant during the 2002 harvest at her hometown’s cooperative.
Once she finished her laboratory work, Soledad got fully involved in fermentations and other production processes. Then in 2013, she took over the reins as winemaker for Campos Reales, the maker of Atril Bio. The biologist turned vintner has a phrase that summarizes her winemaking ideology: “Oenology is the ability to introduce history, magic and passion all into a bottle.”
Using organically grown grapes, Soledad used a Tempranillo base and expertly blended in the perfect amount of Syrah to craft a cuvee that is youthful, fruitful and fresh, all leading to a long and spicy finish — magic in a bottle and in a glass.
