Baigorri Reserva Tempranillo 2015

Baigorri Reserva Tempranillo 2015

Located at the foot of the Sierra Cantabria Mountains in northern Spain, Bodegas Balgorri burrows deep into the Rloja Alavesa hillside much like the old Tempranlllo vines that supply the cellar with ripe, flavorful grapes. Plunging seven stories underground, Baigorri employs only gravity to tum these grapes into rich, well-structured aromatic wines such as this elegant Tempranlllo Reserva

TASTING NOTES: This is a highly-concentrated, dark cherry-red wine.   A lively, strong nose, licorice and leather aromas, with hints of black pepper. It keeps the essentials aromas of compote fruit.  Balance between its pleasant tannins and its acidity. It shows a full body with an elegant finish. It lasts long on the palate with a distinctive silkiness.  This wine pairs well with red meats such as roasted lamb, beef cutlets and sausages.

Baigorri Reserva Tempranillo 2015

Region: Spain

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.
