Tasting Notes: Soft and balanced, strawberry notes and fresh acidity. Delicate pink colour, with aromas of strawberry jam. The style is dry yet commercial with some mid-palate sweetness.

Producer Details: 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.
The entry level Borsao varietals, as you might expect from a well-equipped cellar of this size, are outstanding examples of easy-to-drink inexpensive wines. Increasingly though, Borsao are becoming better known for their premium wines, in particular the iconic, multi award winning Tres Picos.

In The Vineyard: From 100% Garnacha grown on poor, stony soils in the foothills of the Moncayo mountain.

In The Winery: 6 hours cold maceration followed by long slow fermentation at controlled temperature.
