The Details

In a Nutshell

A ripe, fruity and refreshing white from the region's premium producer.

Tasting Notes

Fresh and floral nose with ripe peach and lemon. Nutty stone fruit characters are matched by a broad, textural palate and clean, fruity finish.

Macabeo

Production Notes

From 100% Macabeo grown on stony soils in the foothills of the Moncayo mountain.

After chilling the must, a short period of skin contact is followed by long slow fermentation at controlled temperature.

Producer - Bodegas Borsao

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.
