More About This Wine
About Bodegas Aizpurua Txakoli
Bodegas Aizpurua Txakoli comes from the oldest and furthest north Txakoli zone, Getariako Txakolina (Txakoli de Getaria). Coming from the estate’s sustainably farmed (not certified) Hondarrabi Zuri vines, this classically styled Txakoli was fermented at very low temperatures using only naturally occurring yeasts. With only time in stainless steel, this wine was bottled in the traditional tall green bottle with the incredibly fresh and zippy acidity that is complemented by a slight effervescence that is common in this Basque region white wine. Clean and approachable with ample tart fruit and an exciting mouth-feel, this wine has a quality of the briny sea and is perfect with many types of fresh shellfish, however can also pair beautifully with, and cut right through rich and hearty meats.
About Bodegas Aizpurua
Bodegas Aizpurua is a small, family-owned and operated winery in the Txakoli de Getaria DO of Spain. Situated in the verdant and high mountain slopes of Meagas along the famous El Camino de Santiago, only up the slopes from the north coast of Spain, the family has been growing grapes and making their wines for several generations (since 1834). Just 14 hectares of sustainably farmed vines (ranging from 7 years, to well over 50 years old) that are overhead trained to encourage air to flow under the grape clusters, produce the estate’s 120,000 bottles annually, maintaining the traditional practices of the surrounding wine region to obtain their classic Txakoli.
