2020 Gil Family Estates Morca Touran
Bodegas MORCA is part of Juan Gil Family. Bodegas Morca is located in the village of Borja, in the province of Zaragoza and belongs to the Campo de Borja appellation - the region famous for the red firm garnacha. Garnacha grapes from small plots with low yields are hand-picked and fermented separately in small barrels and then transferred to French oak barrels to complete the malolactic fermentation process. The fruit for this winner de Tourán comes from a very old small (single) vineyard
The Tourán is the top model of Bodegas Morca and is in the Top 100 of the Worlds Best Wines of Wine Spectator. This beautiful Tourán is a blend of great concentration and aging potential without losing freshness. Dark ruby red in the glass, the Touran has notes of roasted notes, smoke, baking spices and black olives with hints of fried corn and meat. It is full, juicy, intoxicating with present oak and fine and abundant tannins and a creamy finish. The wine is also vegan. It is a wine that will continue to improve with time but it will always be a powerful, ripe and oaky Garnacha. Only around 2,500 bottles of this masterpiece are ever made. This is super ripe and intoxicating, in the style of a high-end Amarone where freshness and power go hand-in-hand.

Bodegas Morca is found in Borja, the birthplace of Grenacha, iconic for its specific limestone soils that give the wines character. Situated on the Moncayo slopes you will find the 30-50 year old vines of Bodegas Morca. The cool winds from the north increase the wine's concentration whilst still preserving a freshness and lively acidity. Each parcel of grapes is hand harvested and vinified separately - allowing for the best blending opportunities.
