Botijo Rojo from Bodegas Frontonio is a micro wine named after the earthenware drinking jug ​​that kept the water cold and quenched the thirst of farmers on hot summer days. Elaborated in old Garnacha vineyards but vinified in a young way, meaning it is fermented in stainless steel tanks and is not aged in barrels.

Botijo ​​Rojo shows the youth and fruitiness of the variety, without over ripeness or wood. It is  a sweet, fresh and easy-to-drink wine.

notes

Limited production, micro wine straight from a garage in Valdejalón (North East Spain) where Fernando Mora and Mario López make wines with the absolute minimum of fuss. It’s named after the ancient clay drinking water container -still used by growers to day- cooling water in Spain’s hot, dry climate.

      ★★★★★

      A good selection. Perhaps could have done with a little more cheese - but it was perfect for 2 for lunch or a light meal.

      I’ve been looking to buy the Albariño wine served at Iberica for ages. Now they sell online. Delighted. Easy to order. Love the restaurant.
