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 »

  • Evodia Garnacha 2014

    Snoothrank:

    let it breathe - after decanting it gives barberry, pomelo, soft vanilla tone and fragrance of a broken tree twig that becomes brighter after a while. Mid-Soft beginning and more bright, aggressive ending. Not perfect but definitely very interesting to explore wine. Read More
