About Itsasmendi 7 Txakoli
Itsasmendi 7 Txakoli has been prepared since 2003 with two objectives; the first to produce a Txakoli with more body and structure from selected grapes to accompany the exquisite gastronomy of the Basque Country and, on the other hand, to obtain a Txakoli that could last several years in its aging in the bottle, like other white wine regions with great prestige. This wide and unctuous Txakoli in the mouth, where acidity leads to maturity with balance, is born powerful and tasty to mature in the bottle and acquire harmony, complexity, and elegance over the years. A Txakoli that transmits with personality the variables that occur each vintage. And to be able to enjoy its evolution and storage possibilities.
In line with the last decade, even-numbered years provide has provided the winery with warmer vintages. A difficult spring significantly reduced the amount of production. Very complete vintage in all aspects: good maturity, acidity, bitterness, and aromatic intensity in the nose and mouth. It reminds us a lot of 2011. Fresh and complete nose highlighting white fruit, flowers such as linden, and balsamic herbs such as sage with aniseed notes. To enjoy its evolution in the bottle and storage possibilities for 4-5 years.
About Bodegas Itsasmendi
In 1989 several winegrowers jointly resumed an activity such as viticulture that historically has had such socio-economic and cultural importance in Bizkaia. In 1995 they inaugurated their first facilities in Muskiz, with a capacity for 25,000 liters and in 2002 the winery moved to Gernika, a privileged enclave of the Urdaibai Biosphere Reserve. Mountainous slopes near the Bay of Biscay give rise to the name of the winery and its most valuable heritage, 35 hectares of vineyards. The expression of the climate, the soil, the topography, the microclimate of each vineyard plot, the planning, and management of the vineyards, the use of a respectful and innovative oenological criterion with the most authentic concept of a Denomination of Origin has endowed Bodegas Itsasmendi of his own personality.
Bodegas Itsasmendi is like the Urdaibai Biosphere Reserve to which it belongs: in permanent evolution, full of diversity, natural and complex. The restless and innovative spirit of the team has originated a new concept for Txakoli from respect for the Natural Environment. This new building that represents the ground from which it emerges, aims to be a living building that evolves naturally over the years, adapting to the space where it has been built.
It has an R + D room for new elaborations according to market trends, a Microvinification space to improve the quality of some of our products, and a supply of tanks of different volumes that allow us to elaborate by Municipality, Places, or Singular Vineyards.
