Tasting Notes

From the Campo de Borja region in northern Spain comes this outrageously juicy Garnacha full of redcurrent fruits and a touch of spice.

Works brilliantly with chicken and chorizo stew.

Expert Opinion

In the press...

Of the 2012 vintage, David Williams said: "A new vintage of my favourite sub-£5 supermarket red from the northern Spanish value maestros Bodegas Borsao. It's particularly juicy and lively at the moment - like a punnet of very ripe strawberries and plums but with just a little peppery spice. I'd pop it in the fridge for 20 minutes while throwing together a plate of paprika-heavy chorizo and broad beans, and that's it, post-work job done."

David Williams - The Observer Magazine 12/05/2012

Of the 2012 vintage, The Wine Gang said: Fresh, youthful, juicy red with jammy, peppery fruit and just enough volume and grip to make it taste like wine and Garnacha (aka Grenache), rather than just a fruity alcoholic beverage. Very respectable at the price.

Background

History

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.

Regional info

Produced from 25 to 30 year old Garnacha from selected vineyards at 600m altitude. The poor soils combine with the old bush vines to produce moderate to low yields of grapes with excellent colour, fruit concentration and acidity. The cooling breeze from the Moncayo mountain allows the grapes to ripen slowly resulting in deep flavour and dark fruit characteristices.
