Drink it now or cellar for up to 8 years. No need to decant.

Bodegas Baigorri was founded in 1996 by a small group of producers with the intention of modernizing wine production in Rioja, an area that in the 1980s had lost the right philosophy. Today this has changed and the great wines of Rioja are once again among the best products in the world.

Baigorri Fermentado en Barrica Blanco is made with 90% Viura, and 10% Malvasia grapes sourced from old vines with an average age of over 50 years, located in Samaniego, at the foot of the Sierra de Cantabria. The grapes are left to macerate with their skins for a few hours before being pressed, to preserve the varietal character. Fermentation takes place in French oak barrels at a maximum temperature of 20º. Finally, the wine is aged in oak barrels on the lees for 8 months.

Viura grapes give the wine fruity notes and lightness, Malvasia adds structure and minerality, while the aging on the lees makes it more creamy and structured.

It is a voluminous and rich wine, with aromas of white fruit but also toasted notes of oak due to aging. In the mouth, it has an excellent consistency balanced by good acidity and notable mineral notes. It goes very well with the intense flavors of blue and goat cheeses, with spicy autumn soups, cured meats, or salads enriched with meat or fish. It should be served cold, at 8-10 degrees.
