£8.75/ 0.75 L btl
Made primarily from the winery’s star variety, the Garnacha (60% and from 40 year-old vineyards) along with a fair amount of Tempranillo (40% and from vines planted 30 years ago).
The wine appears clean and bright, and an intense ruby red colour with violet hues. On the nose it discloses an aroma of high intensity, revealing spicy, toasty and high roast wafts mingling with fruit notes evoking ripe, jammy fruits. Smooth, full and harmonious on entry, well-integrated tannins come through on the palate, with a full aftertaste.
Aged for 9 months in American and French oak barrels, with a further period of ageing in bottle.

Drinking and storing
Almost unbelievable value value
At £3.90 this is astonishing. At £10 it would be good value. The nose is clean fruit with a little vanilla, there is a little initial harshness on the palate which disappears if you let it breathe for a few minutes. After that you have a very well made, mid-weight, Grenache Tempranillo with good fruit, a touch of vanilla and pleasant, subtle, tannins. Very good structure and excellent follow through.
Me gusta especialmente me gustan los vinos con sabor a frutas y este para mí es un peligro
Un vino muy recomendable
Un vino suave, pero amplio, con notas muy agradables donde el regusto al roble está bien ensamblado. Espléndido sabor de boca en cada copa. Muy recomendable tanto para tomar con carnes a la plancha como con tapas de embutidos.

Bodegas Aragonesas was founded in 1984 when several cooperatives in the Campo de Borja region decided to unite to market the wines they were producing. The intervening years have seen this winery grow in prestige and recognition globally due to their Coto de Hayas brand, their star variety Garnacha used in the production of many wines, often originating from extremely old grapevines, and the careful management of their extensive vineyards has not gone unnoticed either.
