Bodegas Morca Flor de Goda 2020
Bodegas Morca Flor de Goda is their youngest wine. Opaque ruby colour with a purple tinge. Ripe aromas of blue and black fruits fill the nose, with mocha and spice box nuances flirting along the edges. The full-bodied palate has almost sweet tannins, a balanced acidity and a smooth meaty mouthfeel that also has plenty of youthful vigour. Blackberry, blueberry and plum flavours dominate the palate but mingle with mineral, dark chocolate, licorice and cracked pepper notes.
100% Grenache/Garnacha. Bodegas Morca is located in the village of Borja, in the province of Zaragoza. The fruit for this wine comes from small plots of low yielding younger vines on the estate. Embracing the limestone soils of the fields of Borja, the old strains resist the furious Cierzo winds.
Harvesting by hand, fermentation done separately in small vats at controlled temperature of 22–26ºC. Briefly ages for 6 months in French oak barrels.
