2005 Bodegas Baigorri Rioja Crianza
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.
