Rated by Robert Parker as “possibly the single greatest dry red wine value in the world” – we will let you be the judge! Wonderful concentration with a lovely velvet texture and more savoury elements mingling with a pureplum fruitiness. Truly scrumptious and – as ever with Borsao – delivers outstanding value for money.

Producer

The winery was established as a co-operative in 1959. In 2001 it joined with two other progressive, co-operative, cellars in the Campo de Borja region to become the Bodegas Borsao that we know today. Grapes are sourced from over 375 member growers covering 2,400 hectares – nearly a third of the region’s total. Vineyards lie in the undulating foothills of the Moncayo mountain, ranging from around 350m to 800m above sea level. At lower altitudes vines are younger and may require some irrigation, but higher up the slopes the vines are older, unirrigated bush vines.

Grape Variety

85% Garnacha, 10% Syrah and 5% Tempranillo.

From selected 15 to 30 year old vines grown in low yielding hillside vineyards around 600m above sea level. Soils are stony with some sand. The Tempranillo and Syrah grapes are trellised, but Garnacha is bush vine. Harvest usually takes place in the first two weeks of October. Varieties are vinified separately (22-24º C) in stainless steel with 10-15 days maceration.

 

Food Match
