Characteristics of Baigorri Blanco Fermentado en Barrica

Baigorri Blanco Fermentado En Barrica is a white wine from Rioja, prepared by the Baigorri winery. It is a modern style winery applying gravity throughout the winemaking process, both for the movement of the wine and grapes.

Baigorri is located in the town of Samaniego, south of Alava (Rioja Alavesa). Baigorri Blanco Fermentado En Barrica is made from Viura (90%) and Malvasia (10%). The grapes come from old vines grown sustainably.

For its preparation, the grapes are de-stemmed by hand and selected grain by grain on sorting tables. Subsequently a maceration is performed with the skins for a few hours.

Finally, Baigorri Blanco Fermentado En Barrica is fermented and aged in new French oak barrels with its lees, moved regularly for about 6-8 months.

Tasting notes Baigorri Blanco Fermentado en Barrica

After a winter with normal temperatures and rainfall for D.O.Ca Rioja, high temperatures in spring and summer market his year, as well as the absence of rain at the most dangerous times for the vineyard. These factors led to very healthy vines, but the harvest was brought forward three weeks on average. As a result, this year was rated as a very good one in the area, with the only drawback of not reaching full ripeness. Therefore, the wines from this vintage are those typical from Rioja, with a slightly higher alcoholic strength and a good balance between acidity and ripening.
It was a fairly balanced year until the harvest season arrived. The beginning of the cycle, in October, started with high temperatures, and it was not until mid-November that the first frosts began and the leaves of the vines began to fall to prepare for winter. Throughout the winter, rainfall was generous and water reserves could be secured for the growth cycle period. During the months of March and April, there was an increase in temperatures that led to the good sprouting of the plant. The growth cycle of the vines was suitable, and the sudden rise of temperatures resulted in quite a fast blooming. There was an optimal growth of the fruit, until the harvest season, when rains damaged the state of the grapes and caused a drop in production. This is a good vintage, but the last rains damaged the final result. The wines are good and can be drunk in the short- and mid-term, they have a medium body and material.
This vintage was marked by a very rainy and cold spring just at the time of the growth cycle. This fact caused it to ripen unevenly and with a certain delay. Thanks to a fairly dry September and October, the grapes that ripened with a certain delay were harvested in a selective manner. A complicated vintage, but with good results since there was an exhaustive selection of the grapes. A good balance between concentration and acidity in their youth define the wines from this vintage.

Sight Golden yellow colour, very clean and bright. Nose Medium-intensity nose in which we can perceive a balance between the load of fruit, the white and yellow fruit, really ripe, together with notes from its ageing in barrels, pleasant toasted hints, reminiscences of yeasts, dried fruits and butter.  Taste In the mouth, it has a good attack, an unctuous mid-palate marked by a good acidity which provides it with a good definition, a good structure and a long, persistent and pleasant finish. A white wine fermented in barrels totally recommendable.
