Winemaker's Notes

Deep and dense with citric and brine infused notes. The palate is rich and extremely flavorful. This light and crisp wine is bottled with residual carbon to give it its signature natural spritz.

60% Hondarribi Zuri, 20% Mune Mahatsa and 20% Txori Mahatsa

Critical Acclaim

"Greenish straw. Vibrant, racy aromas of lime pith, green apple, quince and agave. Chewy and plump in the mouth, with flavors of fresh peach, pear skin and fennel. Finishes dry, dusty and chalky, with firm acids and refreshing bitterness. This is not what most Americans expect of a Txakoli but it's a classic rendition of the wines from this subregion, whose wines tend to be fatter and richer. "

Learn About Bodega Gurrutxaga

Bodega Gurrutxaga was founded by Gotzon Urezpi in 1998 after having purchased an old winery and vineyard in the Mendexa region of Bizkaia. With a beautiful landscape facing the sea, Iñigo has been working to restructure the existing vines and plant new vines on surrounding land. They currently have four hectares planted to Hondarribi Zurri, Hondarribi Beltza and Mune Mahatsa. In the next few years they will be planting eight additional hectars in the surrounding hills creating one of the largest single estates in Bizkaia.
