Tasting Notes

Rich, plum and red berry fruit on the nose. A nicely balanced yet concentrated red fruit mix with darker spice and chocolate notes to give weight and texture to the palate. Plump soft tannins and a touch of pepper add some grip to this ripe, juicy and approachable red.

Producer details

Bodegas Borsao was establised in 2001 and is a collection of three of the most progressive co-operative cellars in the Campo de Borja zone southeast of Rioja. Grapes come from 620 member growers covering 2,500 hectares, nearly a third of the region's total. Vineyards lie in the undulating foothills of the Moncayo mountain, up to 700m above sea level. In this rather severe and arid climate, with hot dry days and cool nights, Garnacha thrives and represents 70% of total production. New varieties such as Syrah, Tempranillo, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon have also adapted well to this rugged and stony terrain. The entry level Borsao varietals, as you might expect from a well-equipped cellar of this size, are outstanding examples of easy-to-drink inexpensive wines. Increasingly though, Borsao are becoming better known for their premium wines, in particular the iconic, multi award winning Tres Picos.

In the vineyard

From selected 15 to 30 year old vines grown in low yielding hillside vineyards at 500m above sea level. Harvest takes place in the first two weeks of October.

In the winery

Separate fermentation between 22 and 25º of the different varieties in stainless steel tanks with 15 days of maceration.

Food Recommendations

Good accompaniment to meat dishes and can handle spice. Try with chicken and chorizo paella.
