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 »

  • Bodegas Paniza Chardonnay 2013

    Snoothrank:

    With a hint of reduction on the nose, this shows tight and spicy with hints of apple skins and a touch of dusty minerality and some leesy background notes. In the mouth its a decent Chardonnay a bit fat, lots of slightly warm apple and pear fruit with a hint of pineapple on the palate and through the modest finish. 83pts Read More

Moderately rich on entry with good acid, supporting a little apricot and mostly green apple fruit with green plum on finish, good length, and a hint of rs covering the acid on the lemony finale. Fruity and straightforward with a hint of mineral spice. 85pts Read More

  • Corona de Aragon Special Selection Garnacha/Carinena 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Inky, black fruity and a little smoky on the nose this shows some latex American oak, toasted hickory notes that rise with air. A big wine on entry, the fine acids help to keep this bright in the mouth and even though its fairly tannic, the tannins are ripe and round and well integrated into the dark berry and slightly plummy and leathery fruit ...
