Spanish Sundays: Los Dos Rosé 2015 from Campo de Borja DO

I tried this wine at a Society of Wine Educators conference seminar sometime ago. I enjoyed this lively Rosé made from Garnacha (85%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (15%). Los Dos is owned by Bodegas Aragonesas , the largest winery in Campo de Borja.

The wine ferments in stainless steel. I liked its raspberry, strawberry and floral aromas and flavors. It had nice minerality and a long length. As Spring rolls in, my Rosé consumption will increase and this one will definitely make the list. The winemaker is Javier Vela.

Campo de Borja is a DO from Aragón which received that denomination in 1980.
The kingdom of Aragón is an autonomous area and has been famous since the 12th century. The terrain is varied with mountains and plains. The soils are chalk, clay and limestone.

The DO is planted with mostly Garnacha but also other grapes including
Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, and Mazuela. The white varieties that grow are Viura, Macabeo, and Moscatel.

The grapes are grown on the La Corona and El Picador Vineyards at 1,805 feet.
The vineyards lie between the Sierra de Moncayo mountain range and the Ebro River valley.

This wine is imported by The Winebow Group. The SRP is around $13.
