Aragón Wine

 

This region, rich in history, was once the home of celebrated 16th century royals Ferdinand and Isabella and their daughter, Catherine of Aragon, maligned first wife of England’s King Henry VIII. Aragon is spread between the Pyrenees at the French border to the central Iberian plateau. Because the climate ranges from cool, mountainous conditions to warmer climates in lower elevations, many different styles of grapes are grown.
 
It is home to four D.O.’s: 
 
Somontano at the foot of the Pyrenees makes well received whites, reds and rosados with a far range of varietals grown, such as Tinto del Pais (Tempranillo), Garnacha, Macabeo as well as many other classic French grapes such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah. 
 
Cariñena is named after the grape, which had been the main planting until the popularity of Garnacha took over. Other red grapes grown include Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah and its most popular white is Viura. Juicy Read more »

  • Ateca Atteca Garnacha Calatayud Old Vines 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Very pleasant on the palate with fruit and vanilla overtones with just a faint hint of sweetness. Finish has a slight citrus note than lingers pleasantly. I really like this wine. I paired it very successfully with grilled chicken and roasted vegetables and had another glass after dinner for my dessert. Read More

  • Bodegas Alto Moncayo Garnacha Campo de Borja Aquilon 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Intense Opaque Purple Violet in the glass. Opens with a musky baked ripe red cherry with just a bit of raisin spice. Onward to milk and dark chocolate, plum, and cola. In the mouth - a mouthful. Minutes and minutes long lovely finish. Perfectly balanced Tannins and Acidity, and while it seems perfect now, seems like it will continue to age and a... Read More

  • Monasterio de las Viñas Cariñena Reserva

    Snoothrank:

    Deep burgundy in color with purple tinges around the rim....very nice legs appear on the side of the wine glass. Earthy aromas of deep berry and grape, hints of licorice and/or dark chocolate and flavors follow suit with added black cherry and very dark ripe fruits with pits...dry soil. The mouthfeel is dry...almost cotton like, clean and velv... Read More

  • "As of 2010, Airén was estimated to be the world's 3rd most ... Greg, of course I knew about Aragon. First Spanish garnacha I ever had was from Priorat, but the second was from Calatayud. Seems most all the plants there are grown up hillsides above 1700 feet. Later had plenty from Campo de Borja, too. Just for completeness' sake, here are some... Read More

  • DM - as you know, it's originally from Spain in Aragon. It was the most widely planted red variety in the world just a few years ago and may still be. It was also the most planted red grape in Spain, which still has like twice as much as anywhere else in the world. Relatively speaking they have even more Monastrell, but that's a different story....
