Bodegas Borsao Syrah Campo de Borja Zarihs/Shiraz - a collaboration of Spain and Australia Borossa
Aragon sits adjacent France, in the northeast corner of Spain, home to many rivers including the Ebro, Spain's largest river in volume, which runs west–east across the entire region through the province of Zaragoza. It is also home to the highest mountains of the Pyrenees. The Aragon region is the transition zone between the plains of the River Ebro and the mountains. Borja is one of 16 municipalities in the The DOP wine region.
Wine Advocate called it “Borja wine with an Australian accent”, and Heraldo de Aragón, "A Borsao with French stile (sic)”.

- The nose begins to open up and develops notes of dark chocolate.
- Palate: the initial impact is very full bodied, with a plush, soft structure.
- Flavours of dark berries dominate; wild blackberries and dried plums, with notes of espresso coffee.
