Grapes: 100% Garnacha (Grenache)
Style: Intense & Fruity
El Botijo is a limited production wine straight from a garage in Valdejalon (North East Spain) where Fernando Mora and Mario Lopez make wines with the absolute minimum of fuss. It is named after the ancient clay drinking water container – still used by growers today – cooling water in Spain’s hot, dry climate.
The handpicked grapes come from vines that are between 35-45 years old, and only 5% of the wine is aged in 2 - 3 yr old barrels.
A lovely pomegranate red with intense aromas of cherries, blackberries and black pepper on a 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.
