(1 customer review)

£15.95 a bottle

Intense bouquet of mature red fruits with floral notes, typical of the best Garnachas. The palate is rich and well-structured with masses of bramble and ripe strawberry fruit and warm vanilla and liquorice spice. Tannins are supple but evident and the finish is big, generous and long.

Origin

Bodegas Borsao is located in the Campo de Borja – which they refer to as the “empire of the Garnacha“ – southeast of Rioja. Grapes are harvested from the foothills of the Moncayo mountain; at 600-700 metres above sea level. Warm days are tempered by cool nights, which aid the ripening process and preserve acidity in the grape. The Garnacha thrives in the hot climate and this is a special selection of some of the oldest vines.

Producer

Bodegas Borsao was established as a cooperative in 2001, consisting of three of the most progressive cellars and 620 member growers. They are by far the dominant producer in the Campo de Borja, their vineyards covering 2,500 hectares out of the total 6,300 hectares in the region.

Grape Variety

100% Garnacha (aka Grenache).

Harvest takes place in early October, with fermentation in stainless steel tanks followed by maceration on skins and maturation for 10 months in French oak barriques.
