The Details

In a Nutshell

Amazingly good value red from one of Northern Spain's top producers

Tasting Notes

Rich, plum and red berry fruit with a touch of spice on the nose. Balanced yet concentrated red fruit mingle with darker spice and chocolate characters to give weight and layers to the palate. Plump ripe tannins add grip to this classic style of Garnacha.

Production Notes

From selected 15 to 30 year old vines grown in low yielding hillside vineyards around 600m above sea level. Soils are stony with some sand. The Tempranillo and Syrah grapes are trellised, but Garnacha is bush vine. Harvest usually takes place in the first two weeks of October. Varieties are vinified separately (22-24º C) in stainless steel with 10-15 days maceration.

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.
