VARIETALS: Hondarrabi Zuri (85%), Hondarrabi Zuri Zerratia (8%), Munemahatsa (4%), Hondarrabi Beltza (3%)
VINEYARD: Artatxu, Iturriaga, and Torrezar. The vines are planted on clay and sand with a slate subsoil, and trained pergola-style to allow air circulation in this moist climate. Doniene Gorrondona farms 16 hectares of vines, including a unique two-hectare parcel of pre-phylloxera Hondarrabi Beltza. The Bakio valley creates a steeply-sloped bowl which faces the Cantabrian Sea, where vineyards are carved from the rock and surrounded by forests on one side and the ocean on the other. This in-credible natural setting yields distinctive Txakoli wines marked by fresh mountain herbs and salinity.
VINIFICATION: Doniene Gorrondona farms sustainably and the wines are fermented using only native, indigenous yeasts for spontaneous fermentation
TASTING NOTES: Refreshing sensations of Basque sea breezes. Slightly effervescent and very delicious.
