A most recent additon to our ever changing range of interesting, fun and food friendly wines.
Family owned winery with a restauranteur background. They own 2 great restaurants where they offer stunning grilled meats and fish. By selling wines to the customers they realized there was a need for a quality Txacoli which did not exist so much. Hence the father and 2 children looked for land and bought and planted subsequently the indigenous white varietal Hondarrabi Zuri.
During the wine making process the fermentation is stopped hence this slight characteristic fizz you find in the wine, especially in Getariako DO.
This wine has a great personality, well balanced acidity and a great palate, it is fresh, vibrant, with fruity aromas and sea-breeze notes. The aromatic intensity is well-distributed in the mouth and round on the palate, where it leaves a pleasant and lasting taste. A fun wine to enjoy as an appetizer, great for the summer of course but also all year round with fish especially.
If you've been to San Sebastian, you will know as every bar and restaurant will serve you this to drink!.
It combines very well with good-quality fish, Iberian-pork-based appetisers, fresh seafood, salads, rice dishes and – if possible – with delicious grilled fish.
"The Basque country's appley, slightly fizzy Txakoli makes a refreshing start to any meal besides being super-cool. This one is especially delicious." Mary Dowey, thegloss.ie, February 2018
