Winemaker's Notes:

The Ameztoi family has been making txakolina in Getaria for seven generations, utilizing the indigenous Hondarribi Zuri and Hondarribi Beltza grapes to craft a light, crisp wine bottled with residual carbon to give it its signature natural spritz. This spritz makes Ameztoi Txakolina an ideal wine to pair with seafood or the local favorite: tapas. The wine exhibits bright briny sea salt combined with limey fruits. Fresh and eminently quaffable.

90% Hondarribi Zuri and 10% Hondarribi Beltza
