Red grapes make up a very small percentage of those grown in the Txakolina DOC, and rosés make up an even smaller percentage. Produced from equal parts Hondarrabi Zuri and Hondarrabi Beltza, this is the inaugural vintage of rosado from this estate.
Hand harvested in small cases, the grapes are sorted and de-stemmed before being crushed and allowed to macerate for a few hours. The cool fermentation then takes place, resulting in a light pink wine possessing intense aromatics of red fruit (like strawberry), citrus and mineral notes. Bright acidity provides the backbone and is balanced with a fine pearl of spritz on the tongue.
Super food friendly and highly refreshing.
Located in the charming fishing village of Zarautz, this family winery is one of the top small producers in the D.O. Getariako Txakolina. Bixente Eizaguirre, founder of the winery in 1992, is a fourth generation winemaker and his daughters, who now are very active in winery operations are the fifth.
Vineyards are from older holdings planted on the lower slopes facing the sea as well as more modern plantings facing south using modern trellis systems. The grape varietals are Hondarribi Zuri (white) and Hondarribi Beltza (red), which are indigenous to the area.
