The wine

Coto de Hayas Garnacha Centenaria is an essential reference wine for any fan of Grenache wines. Made with hand-collected grapes growing on very old vines and producing less than 1 kg per plant.

What does this wine taste like?

What stands out about Garnacha Centenaria is the perfect integration between fruit and wood. Strawberries, cherries and blackberries delight the nose, alongside aromas of undergrowth and dry aromatic herbs. Hints of pepper and cloves appear embellished with fine toasted and smoky touches thanks to its time spent ageing in wooden barrels.  

Offering a silky mouthfeel and magnificent acidity, it is both juicy and fresh. A relatively intense wine whose suggestive and sharp fruity and floral aromas reinforce its varietal character. Smooth to start out with, it delivers a full, harmonious and well-structured wine, extremely rich in nuances.

Wine critics reviewsReviews by Parker

The spicy and smoky 2020 Coto de Hayas Garnacha Centenaria has a commercial profile; it's showy and tasty with pungent flavors of vanilla and some oak-related tannins. It's ripe without excess at 14.5% alcohol and has mellow acidity. It matured in French oak barrels for four months, including malolactic. For fans of oaky Garnacha. 100,000 bottles produced.

Winemaking

The grapes used to create Coto de Hayas Garnacha Centenaria are usually harvested in the first week of October. The wine is then made using traditional methods. Grapes undergo a cold maceration for 24 hours to preserve the fresh aromas of the fruit, followed by fermentation at a controlled temperature of 26º C and ten days of maceration. Once the desired profile has been achieved, the liquid is bled and pressed. The wine then spends four months on its lees in French oak barrels where malolactic fermentation takes place and its intense fruitiness is highlighted and rounded off.
