Fresh bright red fruit balanced by a fine structure and ample bouquet. Vina Borgia is made from 100% Grenache and is a fine example of this varietal. This wine is vinified with utmost care and bottled under the strict supervision of the winemaker, Jose Luis Chueca Sancho.
"100% Garnacha, full and ripe, even a bit overripe, this rich and exuberant wine offers lots of black fruits and some raisin notes with raspberries and mulberries competing with those raisins. The finish shows some fresh mint and firm tannins, adding to the sense of play. Drink soon or in the next several years. The vineyards for this wine are located 1,200 feet in elevation on chalky, white limestone soil and sandy soils with some gravel. Vines are planted primarily using the vaso system. Allowing for six hours of maceration prior to pressing, the wine is fermented in stainless steel, temperature-controlled tanks." - Winery Notes (This item is available for in-store purchase only, thank you.)
|Our origins go back to 1958, the year the Cooperative of Borja was founded. This is where Borsao originated as a brand. Some years later, the co-operatives of Pozuelo and Tabuenca joined Borja, adding their resources and –most importantly- their vineyards.
This happened in the year 2001, and the new company was called Bodegas Borsao S.A., established as a limited company. Its 620 members became shareholders and a management team was appointed to shake the foundations of the winery: starting with the grape sourcing scheme and following with a refurbishment of the winemaking facilities.
Experience, resources and means combined with the potential of the vineyards of the 3 wine cellars, enabling the development of a new work philosophy that has given Borsao international recognition and prestige.
