Moscatel Ainzon, Bodegas Santo Cristo
Moscatel de Ainzón Vino de Licor is light yellow in colour with golden accents. The scent is complex with elements of honey, flowers and raisins. In the mouth it is unctuous, graceful and sweet with a freshness is due to an excellent sweet acid balance.
Serve this wine as an aperitif, with fruit salad or blue cheese.

DO Campo de Borja
Located in Spain’s northeast province of Zaragoza, DO Campo de Borja is an area rich in winemaking history similar to its more well-known neighbour to the north, Navarra. Like several other lesser known DO regions in Spain, it has weathered serious hardships but is now poised to emerge as a region producing quality Spanish wines. The rugged, mountainous area is bordered by the snow-capped mountains of the Sierra del Moncayo, a position that encourages the growth of ripe grapes in a dry environment free from rot and pests. It is also an area marked by an extreme continental climate, with widely contrasting day/night temperatures and scarce rainfall at below 400mm per year. This dynamic is critical for developing ripe grape skins with aromatic flavour, complexity and structure. The stony soils in Campo de Borja have large stones that resemble the famous ‘Galets’ of Chateauneuf-du-Pape. Like the Southern Rhône, this is a region renowned for its Garnacha – or Grenache – and Campo de Borja has some of the oldest Garnacha vines in Spain.
