Tres Picos Garnacha 2016

EBS001

Bodegas Borsao

" ...clearly one of the greatest values in the wine world, is the 2015 Tres Picos... This wine shows loads of classic Grenache characteristics, such as pepper, licorice, underbrush, Provençal herbs and a boatload of black cherries and raspberries. The wine is rich, medium to full-bodied, pure and luscious and hedonistic. Drink it over the next several years. 91 points." Robert Parker, Wine Advocate #226

Production

The grapes are sourced from Borsao's oldest vines, up to 60 years old, planted on uneven clay and limestone soils in the Alto Moncayo - at an altitude of 600-700 metres. 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 several months in new French oak barriques.

Tasting notes

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.
