Tasting Note

Wonderfully intense and elegant on the nose with white fruit, pear, fresh herbs and citrus notes. The palate is searingly fresh with poise and tension, notable salinity a long, complex finish.

“This Basque Country wine is a cracker, searingly fresh with citrus fruit and a nervy minerality." – Alan Norberg, Shop Manager

Winemaking

Sourced from 3 hectares of vines in Getaria, the yields are carefully controlled in order extract maximum intensity of aromas from the Hondarribi Zuri grape. Fermentation takes place in French barrel all from the first press at a temperature of 12 ºC. 10% of the wine then undergoes malolactic to slightly reduce the acidity and provide more weight and balance on the palate. The Txakoli is then left in contact with the lees for 6 months to add volume and texture.

Food Recomendation

It is the ideal accompaniment for salty seafood such as salted anchovies grilled fish and tuna in oil.

Press

  • 100% Hondarribi Zuri spends six months on its lees in stainless steel. The acidity builds slowly but firmly on the fine, creamy, tropical fruit palate. It finishes with a lick of sea salt. Young, energetic, likeable. Drink 2018-2020.

  • Staying with the bright and breezy theme, but veering into unchartered waters, the little-known Txakolina Adur would be a worthy addition to your summer wine collection. From the wild and rugged hills of the Basque country, this dry white is as pinpoint–sharp as a laser beam, with mouthwatering green apple and lemon tones, and a lipsmackingly zesty, bone dry finish – and crying out for grilled sardines, the freshest of prawns, or calamari.

  • ‘Mineral with lemon hints and grapefruit on the nose,’ began Hakkasan Group’s Diana Rollan, continuing: ‘Dry with grassy pear character, salty and vibrant with notes of citrus, a refreshing and crunchy style.’ ‘Very forward and springy on the tongue, with grass and hay notes,’ added Scott Levy of Smith & Wollensky.
