A new import by Wineseeker.
A wine made from Garnacha grapes from old vines over 65 years old in Rioja. The vineyard is situated over 700 metres with very poor ferrous-clay soil and trained in the traditional bush style known for Garnacha. Manually harvested and hand selected berry by berry. Fermented in stainless steel vats before ageing for 14 months in French oak casks varying in sizes (225L, 500L, 600L).
Intense floral and red-berry fruity notes, with high complexity and harmony. Unctuous, elegant and mouth filling with lots of character and a long mineral finish.
Pairs well with meat and spicy dishes and especially blue and goats cheese.
Sustainably made and vegan friendly.
Bodegas Baigorri's vineyards and state of the art winery are based in Rioja Alavesa and are considered a work of art in their own right.
Built around the winemaking process, an elegant glass structure emerges from the soil and welcomes the visitor with a stunning display of the surrounding vineyards, emphasising that it is here where the process begins. The facility is more than 30 metres below the surface and relies on gravity to drive the fruit and must through its evolution towards world-class wine. The absence of hoppers, pumps or mechanical methods of any kind ensures that the individually selected grapes and the resulting wine are insulated from any potential damage. The result of this combination of careful vine management, rigorous selection and innovative architecture is a collection of well rounded, modern wines with a distinct personality.
