Biurko Gorri
Cellar to 2025

How's it taste?

Fresh red fruit compiled with anise, musk and herbaceous aromas. Delicate pallet which carries the juicy fruit from the nose with savoury spices. While lifting and vibrant, chalky tannins keep this wine grounded. Great wine to go out with but a treat as a quaffer.

How was it made?

Soft and mineral, with a mix of red and dark fruit in a floral register. Open and expressive, with nutty tannins and a lick of spicy acidity, it's clearly Rioja and perfectly varietal Tempranillo. There are purple and blueberry aromas with savoury elements of dried lavender, heather and shaved nutmeg. The palate is clean, with refreshing natural acidity. Fruitfulness lengthens to a long, savoury earthen finish and the chalk soil is reflected in fine tannin.

Who made it?

The philosophy at Biurko is based on combining the cultivation of its grapevines through traditional natural agricultural methods and modern technology. This enables the winery to produce select quality wines whilst maintaining the characteristics of the local grape varieties.

Biurko produces a very wide variety of wines that correspond to the variety and wealth of the vineyards. The style is modern, fruity and balanced.

The young red and white wines are characterised by their freshness, the dominance of their aromas and the primary flavours of the grape, finesse and roundness combined with a great structure and strength as well as great expressivity and their own typology. They are based on monovarietal tempranillo and the sauvignon blanc grown at high altitude in low quantities.

The two-year-old wines are one of the innovations at the winery and they are characterised by the combination of the tempranillo, graciano and old garnacha grape varieties. They are young and fruity yet purvey great colour, structure and complexity, all provided by the careful selection of vineyards and varieties. They are aged for six months in oak casks and this ensures stability and positive evolution for several years.

The wines that are aged for longer periods come from older vineyards. These wines are modern in style and the gentle aging process respects the natural flavours and aromas of the grape. Tempranillo and graciano grapes are combined and the careful selection of grapes from unique vine plantations identifies each wine as being from each individual plot used. The aging process in cask and tank is longer in order to achieve pure natural wines.
