Garnacha - Botijo Rojo - Bodegas Frontonio - Valdeorras - Spain
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.
A lovely pomegranate red colour with intense aromas of cherries, blackberries, and the slight spice of pepper.
This is a bold, fresh and fruity wine with balanced tannins and minerality, reflecting the simplicity and ingenuity of its namesake.
Goes well with steak tartare, game & pasta.
