2022 Txakoli, HiruztaBasque Country, SpainVintage: 2022
Hiruzta (pronounced “Ir-rosster”) is an estate winery in the northern Basque region of Spain. The grapes are grown in their 11-hectare single vineyard, located at the foothills of Jaizkibel mountain, just 500 metres away from the Cantabric Sea. The salty sea breeze influence is one of the main characteristics that can be appreciated in the Hiruzta Txakoli (pronounced “Chaccoli”). The aim of the winery is to restore the tradition of Txakoli production in Hondarribia after all the grape that Txakoli is made from is called Hondarrabi Zuri, named after the town the Hiruzta is based.
The wine has rich aromas of crisp apples, pear, grapefruit and tropical pineapple are enhanced by a subtle, natural effervescence. Balanced and fresh on the palate, it has the slight characteristic of a pearl wine with well-integrated crisp acidity, hints of citrus and tropical fruits and a long aromatic finish.
Why we love it
Packed with flavours of apple, pear and grapefruit with a slight refreshing spritz through to a dry, mineral and salivating finish.
