2020 Bodegas Borsao Seleccion Rosé Campo de Borja
This crisp and lush Rosé from the Campo de Borja DO in northeastern Spain is 100% Garnacha. Like its red and white companions, this rosé is fermented in stainless steel and sees no oak aging, preserving the vibrantly youthful characteristics of the fruit.
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
Small parcels at varying altitudes from 1,200 to 2,400 feet. Soil composed of red clay mixed with sandstones in the Tabuenca Vineyards; gravels and caillous in Borja, and limestone in Pozuelo.
Criomaceration during 1 to 3 hours and then bleed-off. Fermentation in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature of between 14º-18º C.
Red luminescent colour with warm glows of copper salmon. Has a strong aroma of berries and white flowers. Very young and fresh in the mouth, well balanced with its acidity, rich in floral nuances and spices. Hints of tangerine and asian pear premiate this vintage.
Ideal for appetizers, salads, grilled vegetables, seafood, fish tacos, and light casual fare.
Decanter - "First of the summer wines. Refreshing, with layers of ripe strawberry and vanilla, finely balanced, lightly jammy. With enough alcohol to encourage a siesta. Eminently drinkable, with or without food. Good value. Sourced from the higher vineyards of the Moncayo mountain."
