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 wine matures for 22 months in French oak and then each barrel is tasted and after a very strict selection there is a very limited production of this exclusive wine. The wine is then bottle-aged for at least 6-9 months in the Morca cellars before this exclusive wine is released on the market.

This Morca Garnacha has an opaque purple color in the glass with lush but precise aromas of crushed black fruit and plums on the nose, framed by cedar wood and spices. Firmly structured, rich, polished with ripe and supple tannic backbone. This is super ripe and intoxicating, in the style of a (Spanish) Amarone.

Vineyard for 2021 Gil Family Estates Morca Garnacha

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.
