If looking for an everyday wine to pair with that Monday night pizza, Finca Hispana Castrijo Crianza 2011 is a good bet!

Nestled in the Spanish section of the generalist aisle is this down home labeled wine bottle, that upon first glance lets you know that the winemakers wanted to share a story. Finca Hispana Castrijo Crianza 2011 was made by a husband and wife team, who produce grapes and make wine on the land passed down from generation to generation of their family. Their approach is honest and wine making for them is an absolute passion. The wife’s (Aintxane Prieto Uriarte) image completes the wine label and lends to the essence of this wine.

On colour, the Finca Hispana Castrijo Crianza 2011 holds a scarlet hue. On the nose,  herb, green pepper and cherry are noted.  On the palate, red berries are greeted with light herb and balanced tannins. This wine produces a medium to long finish that is quite pleasing.

This wine retails at the LCBO for $15.45
