Tasting Notes

Deep cherry red in colour with a hint of purple. A bouquet of mature red fruits with floral notes that are typical of the best Garnachas. The palate is rich and well-structured showing flavours of blackberries, strawberries and tones of leather, vanilla and a smoky burnt treacle tang. Perfectly combined with a sweet and pleasant tannin, with a generous and balanced finish.

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

The grapes come from vineyards that are between 35 and 40 years old. Located on uneven terrain at an altitude of 600 to 700 metres, these vineyards yield under four and a half tons of grape per hectare. Harvesting by hand early October.

In the winery

Fermentation in stainless steel tanks at a temperature between 25ºC and 30ºC with 21 days maceration on skins. Maturation for 10 months in French oak barriques.

Food Recommendations
