Intro to Borsao Seleccion Blanco –
Borsao Seleccion Blanco from Campo de Borja in Spain is made from the Macabeo & Chardonnay grapes and they produce a very well balanced refreshing fruity white with a lovely aroma.
Full tasting note and wine making –
A real step up from their entry level Macabeo, the Borsao Seleccion Blanco is a blend of 50% Macabeo and 50% Chardonnay and is quite aromatic. The palate mirrors the nose with full nectarine and pineapple characters and a creamy mouthfeel backed by subtle and well integrated oak. It is made from selected grapes from hillside vineyards with poor, stony soil at an altitude of 500 metres. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel and it is then matured in French oak for three months.
The producer –
Bodegas Borsao was established in 1959. In 2001 it joined with two other of the most progressive, co-operative, cellars in the Campo de Borja region to form a limited company.
In the Campo de Borja zone east of Rioja, Borsao sources grapes from over 700 member growers covering 2,400 hectares from vineyards foothills of the Moncayo mountain. The climate is arid, with hot dry days, and cool nights – which allow optimum acidity levels to be maintained within the grapes. Garnacha and Macabeo grapes thrive in these conditions and represents more than 80% of total production.
Borsao has access to a large selection of vineyard plots at different altitudes, and hence to a wide range of great quality grapes. They are recognised for their entry level varietals – as outstanding examples of easy-to-drink inexpensive wines – as they are for their premium wines, in particular the iconic, multi award winning Tres Picos.
