To make this wine, the grapes are harvested manually at night, so that they arrive at the cellar as fresh as possible. They are then vatted in wooden barrels, with 90% of the grapes with their stems and 10% destemmed. The grapes are punched down and the must is pumped over the skins twice daily.
The maceration takes place for for 28 days, and after pressing, the wine is aged for a year.

The Tintilla grape used in Atlántida comes from Pago Balbaína, which is the vineyard in Jerez closest to the sea.
According to tradition, grapes for fino and manzanilla wines came from this vineyard, since they had the freshest soils.
You can share this while serving this wine: The name of this wine, Atlántida (Atlantis) comes from the lost city described by Plato: "Then you could cross this ocean. There was an island, situated opposite the strait, which was larger than Libya and Asia put together. Navigators passed from there to the other islands, and from there to the continent.” According to the latest research, the lost city of Atlantis could have been situated at the mouth of the Guadalquivir river.
