Bodegas Borsao:

Although the history of the city of Borja takes us back to the beginnings of the Paleolithic period, it wasn’t until the 4th century before Christ, in the heart of the Celtiberian period, when thanks to classical and numismatic written sources the name of this village came to light: Bursao. With the passing through Bursao of different civilizations like the Romans, Visigothic Hispania and the Muslims we have inherited architectural remains and above all, the natural inclination of its people towards agriculture and more particularly viniculture. Of equal importance was the implementation of artisanal techniques that today endure as living proof of the cultural richness of the former Bursao today known as Borja. During the I and II centuries, before our time, it used to mint bronze coins, ases and dividers as a symbol of its autonomy. On the obverse of the as we can see a celtiberian rider armed with a lance, riding on the writing of the name of the city in the native alphabet. The emblem adopted by the winery as a sign of identity. Read less

medium bodied rose that comes off meaty with proliferations of dried fruits (strawberries, blueberries) that would hold up well to a meat dish or bbq

I agree this would go with Indian food. After about 7 days vacuum-corked in the refrigerator this wine seemed to behave a bit better. Overall was just ok in its balance and before its 7 day sojourn was probably too acidic. Color was dark brick-red or brownish red with a nose of slightly burnt fruit, probably red raspberry and blackberry. Tannins and acids had calmed down and in the mouth was indistinct except the fruit seemed slightly too pronounced relative to other elements. Finish was sweet and nutty.

    Excellent value-priced rose. Doesn't mention the varietal on the label, but I'm sure it's mostly (if not all) Grenache.
