Produced from 100% Hondarrabi Zuri grapes, a varietal native to the Basque area where this wine is produced. The nose of the wine is explosive, reminiscent of Sardinian Vermentino - herbal and floral at once, even a bit tropical. The palate carries this impression through and amplifies it, supported by vibrant acidity. The body is medium but the complexity and length of the flavors create a big, memorable experience. Harvested from vineyards located on high hillsides that fall away dramatically to the Atlantic Ocean. The grapes are grown on pergola trellising to increase ventilation and reduce rot in this wet climate. Temperature-controlled fermentation, in stainless- steel tanks. Conservation is on lees until bottling, so the wine carries in solution some of the carbonic result of fermentation.
