When I ask Raúl Fernádez, owner of Bodegas La Margarita (Constantina, Sierra Norte de Sevilla), about this wine, he confirms that the idea was to make a wine in line with the first one, Pago del Zancúo, but this time using a different blend with the other varieties planted on the estate.
Borboleta wine is a red wine, which is made with three types of grapes: Tempranillo (90%), Cabernet Sauvignon (8%) and Petit Verdot (2%), which for nine months will be aged in French and American oak barrels.
This wine from Seville gives a shocking impression on the nose, as it is made from 90% tempranillo, although the smell of black cabernet fruit is also noticeable (8%).
Its roundness should be highlighted when we take this wine to the mouth. At first it is fresh, without reaching acid with fruity notes. When it seems to be finishing tasting its flavour, there are notes of anise that encourage you to have another glass.
Raúl confesses that he wanted to give the wine a name in Portuguese in honour of Isabel de Portugal and her admiration for the wines from the Sierra Norte de Sevilla, tasted at its link held at the Alcazares Royal Palace in Seville with Charles V in 1526. Raúl debated between Borboleta (Mariposa in Portuguese) for those who inhabit the land in spring and Árvore ( Tree in Portuguese) for being surrounded by gall oaks, chestnut trees, elms, piñoneros pines, oaks and cork oaks. Finally, the first one is decided simply because it sounded better.
