Welcome to Tesco Wine by the case.
We hope you enjoy your visit.
Spain's Campo de Borja region is a great source of juicy reds and rose wines, with its warm climate.
This is the pink take on the Garnacha grape, with rich strawberry fruit flavours.
One to have to hand when you're entertaining a crowd! Or sip, don't share, with a plate of seafood.
To enjoy this wine at its best, drink within 1 year of purchase.

“£5 doesn’t buy you a lot of wine these days, but Bodegas Borsao, the makers of this bright and robust rosé from the campo de Borja region in Aragon, offer more than most at the price, and as a crown-pleasing party wine on a budget, this is honest, dry and attractively strawberry juicy.”
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.
