Hiruzta Txakoli 2016

Hirutzta Txakoli is a difficult wine to pronounce but is one you won't forget when you try it. Think of the crisp freshness of a Riesling combined with the gentle sprint of a Vouvray and then throw in some Basque magic and you have Txakoli (pronounced chack-o-ly). The grapes used in the blend are from local varietals that many people will not have heard of but the combine beautifully to produce an outstanding wine of exceptional quality and flavour. This is a superb wine to drink on it's own as an aperatif yet it pairs wonderfully with mild cheese, shellfish and seafood in general.

The project has been launched by the Rekalde Family, whose aim is to restore the tradition of txakoli production in Hondarribia (the town which lends its name to the grape variety with which txakoli is produced –the Hondarrabi Zuri); this tradition was lost in the 17th century and is now being restored thanks to the HIRUZTA project. The first vineyards were planted in 2008, and the first wines were placed on the market in 2011.

Vintage

2014, not as 2013 was a perfect vintage. Soft spring and hot days in summer and the weeks before the harvest.

Vineyard

All the vines are in planted in trellis. This is not the traditional planting method, it is used to avoid the high humidity, to increase airflow and to have more exposure to the sun during the day. The climate is wet and rainy, so the vines are planted in a south-westerly exposure to maximise the potential sunshine onto the vines. Manually harvested in 20kg cases, all the grapes are cooled to 5-8ºC to avoid starting any fermentation oroxidation proccess.

Winemaking

Grapes harvested and transported in small crates. Destemming and crushing, followed by gentle pressing. Cold racking at 8' to 10'C. Fermentation at a controlled temperature of between 16' and 18'C. Stored in tanks at a cool temperature to allow the natural carbonic gas to dissolve. Gentle clarification and stabilisation.

Tasting Note

Pale yellow colour with greenish glints. Rich aromas of white (apple), citrus (grapefruit) and tropical (pineapple) fruits, cloaked in an array of white flowers, all enhanced by the subtle efferve scence of the natural carbonic gas. Balanced and fresh in the mouth, it has the slight taste of a pearl wine with well integrated acidity. Agreeable on the palate with hints of pineapple and grapefruit in the long, aromatic finish.

Serving Suggestion

Appetisers, hors d’oeuvres, mild cheeses, shellfish, fish, rice and pulses. Serving temperature: 8' to 10'C. Keeps in the bottle for up to two years.
