James Suckling 90
Light and crisp, but also full of character with some nice red-cherry aromas that pull you back for more and, with each sip, the wine seems to expand a bit more. Drink now or hold. (Aug 2018)
(fermented in stainless steel tanks and aged in used French and American oak barrels for 10 months) Opaque ruby. Pungent smoke- and spice-accented aromas of raspberry, blueberry and vanilla, develop a smoky nuance as the wine opens up. In an extroverted style, offering sweet red and blue fruit and cola flavors and a hint of white pepper that adds back-end bite. A sexy floral note appears on the gently tannic finish, which clings with strong intensity. (May 2017)
Bodegas BorsaoView all from Bodegas Borsao
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.
