While traditionally known for Its quality red wines, a new generation of winemakers in Rioja is showcasing the potential of their while varieties. Bodegas Baigorri selects only the best old vine Viura to produce this limited release barrel-fermented while wine. Inspecting every berry, the cellar produces less than 2,000 cases each year to deliver one of the best white wines from Rioja
VARIETALS: 90% Viura, 10% Malvasia
APPELLATION: D.O.Ca. Rioja Alavesa
AGING: 8 Months in French oak
ALCOHOL: 13.5 %
TASTING NOTES: An attractive golden colour. Intense nose with fresh aromas. Fruit sensations dominate. It is silky in the mouth and well balanced. Long and intense finish. This wine pairs well with most types of seafood and shellfish, white meats, foie, salads and fresh cheeses.
Bodegas Baigorri returns winemaking to its origins in a state-of-the-art facility that is as much a work of art as the wines it creates. Built around the winemaking process, an elegant glass structure emerges from the soil and welcomes the visitor with a stunning display of the surrounding vineyards, emphasizing that it is here where the process begins.
Baigorri then dives more than 30 metres below the surface and relies on gravity to drive the fruit and must through its evolution towards world-class wine. The absence of hoppers, pumps or mechanical methods of any kind ensures that the individually selected grapes and the resulting wine are insulated from any potential damage. The result of this combination of careful vineyard management, rigorous selection and innovative architecture is a collection of well rounded, modern wines with a distinct personality.
