This is the third vintage of Coto de Hayas Viñas del Cierzo, a Spanish red wine of Bodegas Aragonesas.
Separately harvested, the grapes were macerated and then fermented in stainless steel tanks.
After that, the wine underwent malolactic fermentation and was aged for 12 months in French oak barrels.
Finally, this wine from Campo de Borja was aged for some months before its release.
Drink Coto de Hayas Viñas del Cierzo 2013 until 2021.
The red wine Coto de Hayas El Cierzo has a clean, bright, intense cherry colour with a purple rim.
This red wine from Campo de Borja suggests some well-defined aromas of black and red fruit, smoke, black pepper and some mineral undertones, combined with aromas of coffee and spices.
Smooth, yummy and delicately warm, Viñas del Cierzo by Bodegas Aragonesas caresses the palate with hints of cocoa, underbush, wild strawberries and sweet spices. Nice acidity and ripe tannins. Long finish.
