Cabriola by Borsao, DO Campo de Borja 2019


Bodegas Borsao

A rich and impressive Grenache Syrah blend from Borsao's high altitude, low-yielding vineyards, produced in collaboration with renowned Syrah expert Chris Ringland. The oak is really well done here, generous in style but balanced with plentiful fruit, offering complexity. The tannins are also classy, ripe in style, but providing a framework for the substantial fruit concentration.

Meet the producer

The winery was established as a co-operative in 1959. In 2001 it joined with two other progressive, co-operative, cellars...



Produced from 20-40 year old, low-yielding vines, planted on stony clay and limestone soils in the Alto Moncayo at 500-700 metres. Predominantly Grenache, with Syrah and a dash of Mazuelo - each variety undergoes temperature-controlled fermentation in stainless steel separately, with around 15 days maceration on skins. The wine is then aged for 10 months in 90% French and 10% American oak barriques.

Tasting notes

Pronounced ripe red fruit aromas with a hint of vanilla and a lightly herbal note. The palate is full and well-structured with bramble and berry fruit alongside toasty notes and sweet spice. This is a juicy, rich style of red wine but with a really fresh vibrancy with bright strawberry fruit characters, round silky tannins and balancing acidity, to drive a long finish.

Food match

Roast or grilled red meats, hearty sausage or lentil casseroles.
