The deep cherry red Baigorri de Garage Crianza is a made from hand-selected Tempranillo grapes, selected from very old and low yielding vines. Fermentation in large wooden vats precedes malolactic fermentation on the lees in French oak barrels. Bottling is carried out only when a tasting specialist panel deems that it is ready. Aromas of fruit compote, aromatic herbs, bread and figs. The complex palate is astonishing, with flavours of ripe red fruits, raisins, tobacco and liquorice. The finish is equally complex, long and smooth. Decanter World Wine Awards: 2013 Silver Medal for 2008. 2010 Trophy Best Rioja Red.
Special extra mention must be made of Bodegas Baigorri’s unique blend of traditional philosophy based around quality and state-of-the-art technology. The building is cleverly constructed to aid the winemakers produce the best wine from the grapes.
This ultra modern winery is carved out of the mountain, with a top floor entrance that has outstanding panoramic views over the vineyards, to the Ebro river valley and the rocky crests of the Cantabrian mountain range beyond; beneath this, there are six floors designed to deal with the specific stages of winemaking and maturation. Grapes, must and developing wine are transported between each location by gravity; travelling down through the winery from the selection tables all the way to the bottling line without hoppers or pumps, which makes for gentle handling and results in a superior finished wine.
