Product Description
Details

A classic Spanish red wine from La Rioja, Baigorri Reserva is produced solely from old Tempranillo vineyards.

Meticuloulsy harvested and carefully transported to the cellar, after two selection processes only the very best grapes were used to make this wine.

Cold-soaked in stainless steel tanks to extract a high concentration of colour, tannins and flavour out of the skins, the grapes were then delicately crushed by pneumatic press, fermented and transferred into new French oak barrels.

After the completion of malolactic fermentation, this Rioja red wine from Bodegas Baigorri was aged for 18 months in those same barrels.

Finally, the red wine Baigorri Reserva 2018 was aged for some years in the cellar prior to being launched onto the market.

Decant this reserva red wine 1 hour before drinking.

Additional Information
Appearance

The red wine Baigorri Reserva is medium purple with violet tinges and a ruby hue at the rim.

Nose

The nose of this varietal Tempranillo is a Rioja textbook. Blackcurrants, mulberries and underbrush, with an earthy touch and notes of vanilla, Moroccan leather, Havana cigars, bitter cocoa, clove, cinnamon and exotic spices.

Palate

Meaty and smoothed by the years, but not lacking in vitality. Juicy wild berries, hints of spices, balsamic notes and touches of liquorice. Crisp and fresh, this wine of Bodegas Baigorri has a long finish with some mineral remembrances. 

Our personal opinion

A modern Rioja classic, Baigorri Reserva 2018 is a wine that one could drink every day without ever getting tired of it.
