Case of 12 bottles.
Made from a 50-50 blend of Hondarribi Zuri and Hondarribi Beltza (the red Txakoli) grapes, hand-picked from Pergola-trained vines, grown on hillside slopes at an altitude of about 350 metres, about 8km from the Cantabrian Sea. Yields are low and cropping is sustainable.
The grapes receive brief 2-hour maceration, then transferred to temperature-controlled, stainless-steel tanks to cold decant for 24-30 hours. Fermentation last ~10-12 days and the juice remains on the lees for about six weeks, and when fermentation is complete the wine is cold stabilized and lightly filtered. Alc./vol.: 10.5%. RS 5.3 gr/L.
Tasting note: Bright pink colour. Aromas and flavours of fresh strawberry and cranberry, with slight herbal/floral notes. Light-bodied, dry, crisp, with a good balance between the fruit and the acidity. Slight mineral zippiness.
Pairings:Lovely on its own, it will pair with appetizers, paella and other rice dishes, grilled seafood and white meats.
