80% Hondarrabi Zuri and 20% Riesling - Estate Grown from the the Suxtus Vinyard. The wide range of soils and microclimates in the vineyards make for a harvest that stretches out over weeks. Sustainable viticulture and environmentally friendly winemaking stamp their mark on the personality of this Txakoli. Fermented with the skins and aged on the lees for 6 months to give it a fuller, rounder body, and the potential to develop with age. 100% stainless steel. Bright lemon-yellow with an intense bouquet of grapefruit, fresh herbs, and orange blossoms. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied and rich, with zesty acidity giving it nice structure. Bodegas Itsasmendi (Basque for “Sea and Mountain”) comprises 35 hectares of vineyards originally planted in 1989. It’s located in the Basque DO of Bizkaiko Txakolina overlooking the Bay of Biscay, not far from the city of Bilbao. Grapes are farmed by a small group of partners who own the extraordinarily beautiful land. -91 Points WA
