Red Wine Baigorri Crianza 2017
Availability: In stock
The grapes of this Crianza red wine from La Rioja were harvested by hand and brought to the cellar in little boxes. After that they were destemmed, separately fermented in stainless steel tanks, and macerated with frequent pump-overs and punch-downs.
Gently pressed, the grapes completed malolactic fermentation and then they were transferred into new French and American oak barrels, where this Rioja red wine was aged for a period of 14 months.
Finally, Baigorri Crianza 2017 blended and aged for a further months in the bottle before its release.
The wine Baigorri Crianza has a medium-high, cherry-coloured robe with a garnet rim and some ruby glints.
Perfectly balanced, this Tempranillo with some strokes of Grenache and other red varieties smells of ripe black fruit and fruit compote, nuanced by hint of strawberry milkshake, some touches of vanilla and suggestions of herbs, toast and sweet spices.
Velvety-bodied, meaty and savoury, this red wine by Bodega Baigorri exhibits notes of wild berries, spices and some remembrances of tobacco, coffee and leather. Ripe, well-integrated tannins, great acidity and a long, spicy finish.
