Borja Pérez - Baboso Negro
The Baboso Negro is not a wine you will soon forget. Borja explains it is the most difficult variety to farm, with very low yields, a tendency to rot quickly because of its tight bunches and thin skins, but at the winery it is the most generous and easy to work with. With 40% whole bunches, it ferments in stainless steel tanks, light pressing and then ages for 12 months in used 600 L French oak barrels. On the nose we find peppery notes like the Listán Negro as well as abundant fruit, spices, beautiful acidity and a broad, dense texture. Borja told us he thinks this is the best vintage he has ever made of this wine.
