Characteristics of Prados Fusión Garnacha & Syrah
Prados Fusión is a red wine, which has not been aged, from DO Campo de Borja prepared by Prados Fusión. This wine is a blend of Grenache (65%) and Syrah (35%).
The two grape varieties used come from different farms belonging to the winery that take up more than seven hectares. These include vineyards over 80 years old.
The harvest is done manually and the grapes are transported in small boxes up to 20 kilos. The grapes are de-stemmed partially in open vats. Before alcoholic fermentation, a maceration process that lasts a week is done. When fermentation begins, the grapes are trodden.
After this, a traditional manual pressing is undertaken. The wines from the Prados Fusión winery have the experience and tradition of centuries of cultivation in these lands.
The manual methods used in the vineyard keeps the characteristic taste of the area.
Prados Fusión is the new vintage wine formerly called Pagos del Moncayo.

For many years, Aragonese wines were used to strengthen weaker wines, both in Spain and abroad. However, in the past few years Araongese wines have managed to dramatically change this stereotype and their reputation in general. The D.O Somontano region lead this revolution during the 90´s with the cultivation of foreign varieties, but now other wine regions, such as the DOCampo de Borja, have discovered the extraordinary possibilities of one of its native varieties: Grenache, one of the most prominent varieties in Spain. It is not in vain that the DO Campo de Borja is considered "the queen of Grenache".
There is no doubt that the natural conditions of a region are what drive its development as a wine producing area, but the human factor is the one to finally decide if that area is able or not to achieve the recognition of its wines. Campo de Borja is a good example of the great value that the human factor has had in its new development along with its star variety, Red Grenache. And also with the international Syrah in Pagos del Moncayo, which in a few years has served to position the winery as a reference closely linked to the new, more cosmopolitan and modern era of Aragonese wines.
