Viña Borgia Macabeo BIB 20L 2017

This wine expresses the bright freshness Campo de Borja can produce.   

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

About the Vineyard

Vineyard with an age of 10 to 15 years on mostly chalky soils.

Wine Production

Controlled temperature fermentation between 12º and 18ºC in stainless steel tanks.

Tasting Notes

Young crisp white wine with a light straw colour, elegant aromas of citris, peach and pear fruit. Bright tastes of key lime pie with the subtle notes and structure.

Food Pairing

Great with appetizers, salads and seafoods.  Also for a reception as firm structure holds up to a number of passed hors de hoerves
