Product Description
Details

This is a very special Spanish red wine from Rioja.

Produced by Bodegas Baigorri, Baigorri de Garage is crafted from the winery´s own very old Tempranillo vines, located at the foothills of Sierra Cantabria. Farmed following environmentally friendly procedures, these old clones of Tempranillo are more delicate than the modern ones, and have lower yields, but also possess a unique personality.

The grapes were harvested by hand, one by one, and went through an exacting vinification process. The selected grapes received a long pre-fermentation maceration in wooden vats. After this process. they were delicately pressed in a vertical presses specially designed for this wine.

This old-vines Tempranillo was then transferred into French oak barrels, while remaining in contact with its lees. Then this wine from the Rioja Alavesa underwent malolactic fermentation and a subsequent 24-month ageing period in the barrels.

Drink Baigorri de Garage 2015 until 2025.

Decant 1 hour before drinking.

Appearance

The wine Baigorri de Garage has a deep cherry red coloured body, and some bluish reflections.

Nose

Complex and intense aromas, dominated by ripe red fruits and notes of figs, plums and blackberries, characteristic of a Tempranillo from Rioja, all entwined by some herbal nuances and hints of tobaccos, smoked notes, Eastern spices, blue flowers and liquorice.

Palate

This  wine by Bodegas Baigorri has a very flavorful entrance onto the palate, with a round passage and a lush texture. Acidity is exceptional, tannins promise a long life and the wine shows real complexity. This reserve red wine has a long aftertaste of prunes, balsam, vanilla, flowers and toast.

Our personal opinion

A superb Rioja, Baigorri de Garage 2015 is intense, deep and rewarding.

Excellent wine

Really complex and dramatic, with poise, grace and a bit of melancholy - a trait I simply adore. First-class.
