The Cierzo wind from the Moncayo sweeps across the foothills of the mountain. This cold, dry wind reduces humidity levels and allows grapes to be picked a couple of weeks later in the harvest, at full maturity. Yields are less than four and a half tons per hectare. Temperature-controlled fermentation in stainless steel (25-30ºC) with 20-25 days maceration on skins. Maturation for 5 months in new French oak barriques.

 

Tasting Notes

Borsao Tres Picos Garnacha has an intense bouquet of mature red fruits with floral notes, typical of the best Garnachas. The palate is rich and well-structured with masses of bramble and ripe strawberry fruit and warm vanilla and liquorice spice. Tannins are supple but evident and the finish is big, generous and long. A pure and vibrant expression of Garnacha with remarkably elegant tannins and generous velvety fruit.

Try with Spanish tapas such as patatas bravas, chorizo, jamón Ibérico, Spanish tortilla or grilled vegetables. This also works well with grilled red meat, braised dishes and Mediterranean cuisine like roasted eggplant with tomato and feta cheese, grilled Mediterranean vegetables, or braised chicken with olives and tomatoes.

For the cheeseboard try with hard cheeses such as Manchego, mature Cheddar or Gouda.
