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 made with three types of grape, Tempranillo (90%), Cabernet Sauvignon (8%) and Petit Verdot (2%), aged for nine months in French and American oak barrels.
Borboleta is a wine from Seville province that makes a notable impression on the nose, as it is made from 90% Tempranillo; although the smell of black Cabernet Sauvignon fruit (8%) also stands out.
The roundness of the Borboleta is highlighted when we take the wine into the mouth. At first it is fresh with fruity notes, without excessive acidity. On the finish, there are aniseed notes that will 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 the butterflies that inhabit the land in spring and Árvore (tree in Portuguese) because of the surroundings gall oaks, chestnut trees, elms, pine trees, holm oaks and cork oaks. Borboleta was the final decision simply because it sounded better.
