tipo-fermentado

Barrel-Fermented White Txakoli

The productions of certain vineyards, located on well-exposed plots of land, allow for fermentation in oak wood barrels.

Their colours range from straw to pale yellow and they are clean and brilliant. Their aromas are of a medium-high intensity, with notes of fruits and flowers, structured on a balsamic backdrop. In the mouth, the wines are fresh, balanced and complex. They have a lasting finish and an aftertaste that brings back the notes of fruits, flowers and balsam.

 

All the wines are dry, in other words, their residual sugar content should not be greater than 5 g. per litre.

tipo-rosado

Rose Txakoli

Traditionally known as ojo de gallo, it is made with at least 50 % of the recommended Hondarrabi Beltza red grape variety.

In the mouth, the structure is light-medium and the wines are easy to drink, fresh and lively. A lasting, fruity aftertaste that is also reminiscent of the variety.

tipo-tinto

Red Txakoli

Made with the Hondarrabi Beltza variety, this is a young wine with a very marked and distinguished personality.

In the glass, it is an intense red with tones ranging from cherry to violet. It has a prominence of very intense primary aromas with notes of small fruit, green pepper and vegetables. In the mouth, the wines have a medium structure and are fresh with the right amount of tannin and a fruity aftertaste reminiscent of green pepper and vegetables, typical of the variety.

 

Thanks to their structure and complexity, some of the wines can be aged, which furnishes them with a possible presence on the nose of the toast, complemented in the mouth with more complex notes of the wood.
