This customer favorite has been one of our most asked for Spanish wines for years and always sells out quickly. The new vintage is fantastic and everything we’ve always loved about Read More...
Alto Moncayo. Big, full-bodied and loaded with ripe, opulent fruit. Surprisingly approachable upon release due to the smooth tannin structure, it is also capable of aging for many years due to the depth and concentration. This wine always garners high praise from critics with Robert Parker twice awarding perfect 100 point scores for Moncayo! The new release has not been rated yet, but based on our tasting, we believe they will continue to receive accolades from the wine press.

Alto Moncayo is a joint project between Jorge Ordoñez and renowned Australian winemaker, Chris Ringland. The old vine Grenache vines produce tiny yields of intense, flavorful fruit. The wine is subsequently aged in oak for approximately 1 ½ years, giving additional complexity and dding delicious notes of cocoa, vanilla and baking spice.

The Bodegas Alto Moncayo, along with its sister property El Nido in Jumilla, combines the talents of local growers and winemakers with Australia’s super-star winemaker, Chris Ringland. The partnership has the ability to cherry-pick the best parcels of old vine Garnacha from Borsao’s extensive holdings in the region, nearly 2,000 acres.

The Garnacha grape is one of the varieties that best expresses its terroir. Thus, the Garnacha of Alto Moncayo is different from the rest of the Campo de Borja Denominación de Origen (DO) area. This is due to the very strict selection made from the vineyards, the type of soil in which they are grown, the microclimate and the age of the vines. As these vines are very old, the strains are very well-balanced, with a very deep root system.

All of these factors, together with the location of the vineyards, between 500m and 800m in height, where the maturity is very slow, leads to wines of great fruitiness and minerality. In the mouth they are rich and fulsome, with pleasant, mature tannins and highly aromatic persistence.

The native Garnacha grapes of Alto Moncayo, together with the microclimate to which they are subjected, the type of soil, the orientation and rigorous handling combine to make the authentic native terroir, producing wines which are highly distinctive and unique in the world.

Alto Moncayo is a joint project between Jorge Ordoñez and renowned Australian winemaker, Chris Ringland. The old vine Grenache vines produce tiny yields of intense, flavorful fruit. Although Veraton is the entry level wine for Alto Moncayo, it is also full-bodied and generous and represents one of the world’s greatest Grenache values. It is packed with fruit flavor and definitely over-delivers for its price point.

ANTONIO GALLONI 91 POINTS - " Vinous / Antonio Galloni - " Vivid purple. Fresh cherry, blackberry and incense on the highly perfumed nose. Lush, Read More...
sweet and broad on the palate, offering fleshy blueberry and floral pastille flavors that turn spicier with air. Closes on a sweet note of spicy oak, with supple tannins, very good tenacity and a touch of fruitcake."

WINE ADVOCATE 90 POINTS - " The 2013 Tres Picos is the bodegas top cuvée of 100% Grenache from older, head-pruned vines planted on the hillsides of the Moncayo Mountains. Yields were less than two tons of fruit per acre. This was the first of the Grenaches to spend some time in a combination of older French oak barrels (for 10 months) as well as stainless steel. There are 6,000 cases of this outstanding wine. Its dense ruby/purple-tinged color is followed by notes of kirsch liqueur, licorice, pepper and spice box, and a medium to full-bodied, richly fruity, sensual wine with beautiful finesse, complexity and purity. Sometimes Grenache can take on a complex, Pinot Noir-like sensitivity, and this cuvée appears to have done that. Consumers should take advantage of these lovely wines offered at ridiculously low prices."

Borsao's wines have been a corner stone of our Spanish section for years and years. Familiarity sometimes means we don't taste these wines as often as we should. It's true! Just grab Read More...
a glass of Borsao's $5.98 Vina Borgia Garnacha, it is probably the best wine for the money on the planet. The color is a rich dark purple. Warm spices enveloped in blackberry and blueberry. The richness and spice carries through on the palate as the darker fruit tones showing on the nose are brightened by notes of red cherry and pomegranate. The folks at Borsao own nearly 3 thousand acres in Campo de Borja, roughly three quarters of the appellation. This rocky zone in the foothills of the Pyrenees is one of the original homes of the Garnache grape. There is an old church on the property that has records of Garnache plantings that go back to the 900's...
