Product Description

This varietal Spanish red wine from La Rioja is made from old, over 65-year-old Grenache vineyards with very low yields.

Produced by Bodegas Baigorri, the wine Baigorri Garnacha was manually harvested and meticulously selected in the cellar.

The meticulous vinification of this red wine from La Rioja started with a brief maceration, followed by a long fermentation in stainless steel tanks with periodic punch-downs of the solid skin cap to foster the extraction of colour and tannin. Both processes were performed through gravity, using no pumps or mechanical devices.

After that, the wine Baigorri Garnacha 2018 was gently pressed and transferred into new French oak barrels, in which this vegan wine completed malolactic fermentation and was aged for 14 months.

Decant this Crianza red wine 30 minutes before drinking.

Additional Information
Additional Information

The red wine Baigorri Garnacha is deep ruby with some bluish tinges.


Complex and suggestive, this varietal Grenache suggests some intense notes of flowers and wild berries, combined with fresh nuances of spices, lavender, cocoa, toast, aromatic herbs and balsam.


This red wine from Bodegas Baigorri carries a remarkably pure, high-quality red fruit, perfectly integrated with the ageing notes. There are hints of undergrowth, some remembrances of menthol and balsam, and some suggestions of spices over a distinctive mineral background. Crisp acidity, ripe tannins and long finish.

Our personal opinion

Well-balanced and nuanced, with a great drinkability, the wine Baigorri Garnacha 2018 will pair excellently with meat, cheese and white fish.

Irresistible Garnacha wine from La Rioja. Smoothed by the years, the fruit is still intact and exhilarating.

This is very juicy, moreish and crafted with restraint concerning oak ageing. Delightful.
