Awards & accolades
All of us have discovered that classic varieties such as Viura and Malvasia more accurately show the earthy touch and fine lees quiet work during the ageing process. Baigorri Blanco Barrel Fermented comes from old vineyards with an average age of more than 50 years, located in Samaniego town, at the foot of the Sierra Cantabria. Sustainable viticulture in harmony with nature, with 100% manual work. Made with 90% Viura grape, which gives it fruitiness and lightness, and 10% Malvasia, providing it with structure and minerality. The grape had its stems removed and selected by hand, berry by berry, using selection and vibration tables.
It was macerated with its skins for a few hours before being pressed in order to obtain all its varietal character and later to be directly placed into French oak barrels to make the fermentation at a maximum temperature of 20°C. Subsequently, the grape juice underwent moderate clarification, which allowed to discard the solid sediment in suspension and to keep the juice clean.
This wine was aged in new French oak barrels together with its lees.
It is a voluminous wine, with fine notes of ageing and very good acidity, easy to combine, drink and enjoy.
