    Description

    Prepared with Zugarai vineyard’s grapes. The oldest txakoli cellar in the Cantabrian Coast. Grapevine and espalier structured.
    Pale yellow with golden hue intakes. Greenish and grey iridescene in thin layer, inherent in ZUDUGARAI varaiety. Long lasting and balanced mouthfeel. Good aromatic intensity, mainly with herb tones, green apple and citrus, where brwear’s yeast and pulp notes appear.
    Interesting nose. When you taste this wine you find freshness and lightness. Good aromatic itensity and expresive retronasal.
    90/100 by James Suckling.  

    Variety Description

    Txakoli

    Txakoli wines predominantly come from the fiercely independent Basque Country, plus also Cantabria on Spain’s Atlantic coast, along the southern edge of the Bay of Biscay. It is also made in some parts of northern Castile and León. These days, whites are by far the most commonly produced, and they are famously poured from an extravagant height in the local pintxos bars around San Sebastián’s old town and also in Bilbao – where around 80% of total production is consumed. They are generally light in alcohol, slightly sparkling and dry. White wines are made from the local Hondarrabi Zuri grapes. This makes finding Txakoli wines outside of the region tricky, but luckily there are some excellent examples finding their way to foreign shores.

    Country Description

    Spain

    Spain is the most widely wine producing country in the world, but the dry, infertile soil found in many Spanish wine regions makes low yields making Spain only the third largest wine producing country. The country has an abundance of native grape varieties, with over 400 varieties planted throughout Spain though 80 percent of the country's wine production is from only 20 grapes. Major Spanish wine regions include the Rioja and Ribera del Duero which is known for their Tempranillo production; Valdepeñas, known for high quality tempranillo at low prices; Jerez, the home of the fortified wine Sherry; Rías Baixas in the northwest region of Galicia that is known for its white wines made from Albariño and Catalonia which includes the Cava and still wine producing regions of the Penedès as well the Priorat region.

    Region Description

    Gipuzkoan Coast

    Along the Gipuzkoan coast, the hondarrabi zuri grape (white) and hondarrabi beltza grape (red), rise above the humid ground, that grants Txakoli Zudugarai with a perfect coolness and its noticiable minerality. Perfect freshness, with a juicy start, citric and filled with a salty end. The Basque pleasure.
