Borsao Garnacha 2017

This wine shows all the varietal charachter of the Garnacha from Campo de Borja. Sourced from small parcels in the Tabuenca, Borja, and Pozuelo vineyards, it expresses the escense of Borsao.

Located between the Sierra de Moncayo mountain range and the Ebro River valley, this historic region has produced wine since the late 12th century. The continental climate is mitigated by the “cierzo” wind that cools the vineyards nightly.

About the Vineyard

Vineyards with an age of 15 to 25 years on stony and slimy soils with clay and limestone. Red clay mixed with sandstones in the Tabuenca, gravels and caillous in Borja and limestone in Pozuelo vineyards.

Wine Production

Pellicular maceration during 1-2 days and in total between 10-12 days. Separate fermentation of each variety in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature of between 22º-28º C.

Tasting Notes

This wine has a deep ruby color, a big sweet kiss of licorice, kirsch liqueur and darker currants, cherry red with violet nuances. Has a ripe fruit nose with floral tones. It is medium-bodied, refreshing, exuberant and fruity, pure and lusty spiciness and with a complex and long aftertaste.

Food Pairing

Casual food, vegetables, pasta and rice, chicken, red meat and barbecue in general.
