The Details

In a Nutshell

A warm, generous red from one of the region's top producers.

Tasting Notes

Intense ripe plum and cherry aromas combine with sweet toasty oak on the nose. A rich, warm, generous palate with concentrated blackberry fruit, backed by acidity and ripe tannins. Good concentration with coffee and spicy vanilla notes - bright through to the finish.

Production Notes

Produced from 15-30 year old Garnacha vines from selected vineyards at 500-600m altitude and 10 year old Syrah vines. The poor stony, sandy soils, low night-time temperatures and moderate yields give grapes with excellent colour, extract and acidity. Fermented at 22-25C with 15 days maceration followed by 3 months maturation in French oak barriques (new or 2nd year).

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.
