Bodegas Borsao is located in the Campo de Borja - which they refer to as the “empire of the Garnacha“ - southeast of Rioja. Grapes are harvested from the foothills of the Moncayo mountain; at 600-700 metres above sea level, warm days are tempered by cool nights, which aids the ripening process and preserves acidity in the grape respectively. The Garnacha thrives in the extreme climate and represents 70% of production.
70% Garnacha, 20% Syrah and 10% Tempranillo.
Each grape variety is fermented separately at controlled temperatures in stainless steel vats. Total maceration lasts 10-12 days.
Drink now and over next 2 years.
Bodegas Borsao was established as a cooperative in 2001, consisting of three of the most progressive cellars and 620 member growers. They are by far the dominant producer in the Campo de Borja, their vineyards covering 2,500 hectares out of the total 6,300 hecatres in the region.
Good accompaniment to meat dishes and can handle spice. Try with chicken and chorizo paella.
Suitable for vegetarians.

"Possibly the single greatest dry red wine value in the world, this is an unbelievable wine....this possesses remarkable depth, an expansive texture and wonderful freshness as well as purity. On taste alone, this beauty could easily sell for $30-50 a bottle. I don't understand how anyone can make wines this good to sell at this price." Robert Parker.
