The 2018 El Borde comes from the vineyard El Llano del Sastre in the village of Venta del Pino. It’s an organically farmed three-hectare plot planted with 1,500 vines per hectare on very white, limestone-rich soils at 800 meters in altitude.
The wine keeps its varietal character and notes of Mediterranean herbs but with the freshness of the higher altitude zone and a cooler year. It matured in used see-liter French oak barrels for 10 months. It’s ripe and juicy, powerful, with grainy tannins and ripe fruit flavors.
It naturally pairs well with just about any hearty and meaty dish. It also pairs well with stews or soups, cheese and some other dishes such as pasta, vegetables, rice and mushrooms.
