Winemaker Notes

A lovely pomegranate red with intense aromas of cherries and 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.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The pure Garnacha 2020 Botijo Rojo Garnacha was produced with grapes from dry-farmed and head-pruned vines in the village of Épila at 450 meters in altitude. The grapes were picked at 13.5% alcohol and fermented and matured in concrete with some 10% full clusters to produce a wine that is juicy, varietal and easy to drink. All these wines have a low pH (3.27 in this case) and are fresh and balanced. It's young and primary, with fruit-forward aromas and flavors but with depth and very good balance and freshness. Elegant and quite surprising for an entry level.

Botijo Rojo, Spain
Botijo Rojo Frontonio Alpartir Winery Image
El Botijo is a limited production red wine, straight from a garage in Valdejalon (North East Spain) where Fernando Mora (MW) and Mario Lopez make wines with the absolute minimum of fuss. The Las Cellas vineyard is owned by Mario’s family, and was sold to the localcooperative for 40 years until Mario and Fernando decided to start tinkering in their garage. It’s named after the ancient clay drinking water container – still used today – to cool water in Spain’s hot, dry climate.

Spanish red wine is known for being bold, heady, rustic and age-worthy, Spain is truly a one-of-a-kind wine-producing nation. A great majority of the country is hot, arid and drought-ridden, and since irrigation has only been recently introduced and (controversially) accepted, viticulture has sustained—and flourished—only through a great understanding of Spain’s particular conditions. Large spacing between vines allows each enough resources to survive and as a result, the country has the most acreage under vine compared to any other country, but is usually third in production.

Of the Spanish red wines, the most planted and respected grape variety is Tempranillo, the star of Spain’s Rioja and Ribera del Duero regions. Priorat specializes in bold red blends, Jumilla has gained global recognition for its single varietal Monastrell and Utiel-Requena has garnered recent attention for its reds made of Bobal.
