Welcome to Tesco Wine by the case.
We hope you enjoy your visit.
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.
To enjoy this wine at its best, drink within 1 year of purchase.

Of the 2011 vintage, Victoria Moore said: "My notes for this simply say: “Is this the best sub-£5 red in the world?” Textbook stuff, made from garnacha grown in the north-east corner of Spain, it’s a simple but fruity, red berry-scented, sumptuous, cheery, unoaked red."
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.
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.
