El Botijo is a limited production, micro wine straight from a garage in Valdejalon (North East Spain) where Fernando Mora 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.
A lovely pomegranate red with intense aromas of cherries and blackrries and black pepper on spicy backdrop. This is an intense, fresh and fruity wine with well-balanced tannins and pleasing minerality, reflecting all the simplicity and ingenuity of its namesake.
