Coto de Hayas Crianza
"A bold, modern style"

Coto de Hayas Crianza

2011, Campo de Borja Spain

Pizza Vegetarian Lamb
  • Garnacha (aka Grenache) and Tempranillo blend from Campo de Borja, Spain
  • 91/100 (Wine Spectator) - "A bold, modern style. Drink now through 2017"
  • 87/100 (Wine Enthusiast Magazine) - "the Holy Trinity of internationally friendly value wines"

From an area in north-east Spain called Campo de Borja - winemaking's been happening in this neck of the woods since the 12th century when Cistercian Monks first started planting vines.

A few vintages have flown by since those days of borderline drinkable Monk wine! These days you can lay your mits on some extremely approachable, modern style Spanish reds at very modest prices. 

This is a blend of Spain's two most famous grapes - Garnacha (also called Grenache) and Tempranillo. The word "Crianza" slapped on the bottle is taken from Rioja's strict oak aging rules. While entry level "Rioja" has little or no oak aging Crianza is the next step up with a minimum of 12 months in oak and 12 months in bottle before release.

What you get is some high quality, every day drinking style red that hasn't gone over the top with the use of oak. Think of it as a full bodied, fruity Merlot or Cabernet.

Two of the world's most respected wine mags gave decent reviews for Coto de Hayas' Crianza 2011 - Wine Spectator scored it 91/100 and said "A bold, modern style. Drink now through 2017". It scored 87/100 in Wine Enthusiast, who called it "the Holy Trinity of internationally friendly value wines."

The lowdown: 13.5% alc / 750ml / Cork
