Botijo Rojo

Garnacha Tinta 2016

DESCRIPTION

El Botijo is a limited production, micro wine straight from a garage in Valdejalon (North East Spain) where Fernando Mora MW, Francisco Latasa and Mario López make wines with the absolute minimum of fuss. It’s named after the ancient clay drinking water container —still used by growers to day— cooling water in Spain’s hot, dry climate.

TASTING NOTES

Medium ruby with intense aromas of cherries and violets and black pepper on spicy backdrop. This is an intense, fresh and medium body with well-balanced tannins and pleasing minerality, reflecting all the simplicity and ingenuity of its namesake.
