Tres Picos Garnacha Campo de Borja, Borsao 2017
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. 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. Deep cherry red in colour with a hint of purple. A bouquet of mature red fruits with floral notes that are typical of the best Garnachas. The palate is rich and well-structured showing flavours of blackberries, strawberries and tones of leather, vanilla and a smoky burnt treacle tang. Perfectly combined with a sweet and pleasant tannin, with a generous and balanced finish.
