Baigorri Crianza 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

The 100% Tempranillo grapes for this Reserva are hand-selected using vibration and sorting tables, and stalks are removed from the grapes without squeezing them. Pumping-over is natural; we use gravity in order to achieve the best extraction of polyphenols. Malolactic fermentation then takes place in French oak barrels. The wine was aged for 18 months in French oak barrels before it is clarified and bottled without any type of filtration.

Kräftiges Purpurrot, granatfarbene Reflexe. Offenes, sehr zugängliches Bouquet nach Dörrzwetschgen, getrockneten Feigen, auch Baumnüsse und würzige Noten gesellen sich dazu. Eleganter Auftakt, abgelöst durch eine kraftvolle Tempranillo-Aromatik, viel Reife ausdrückend; eine gute Frischenote verleiht diesem Reserva die richtige Balance, feine Röstaromen und samtweiche Tannine unterstützen das langanhaltende Finale.



Tasting Notes:

The herbal, minty nose derives from the very character of Tempranillo, as well as from the American oak barrels used for the wine’s aging. The wine’s nose is rich, even approaching overripe aromas. In the mouth, it’s a very different animal: toast, red cherry, red currants, and spices. Drink soon or in the next couple of years.
