Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

70% Mune Mahatsa, 30% Txori Mahatsa.

This light and crisp wine is bottled with residual carbon to give it its signature natural spritz. Tasting Notes - Fresh green apples and citric notes. The flavors on the palate are refreshing and almost salty.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2009 Uriondo Txakolina was made from 70% Mune Mahatsa and 30% Txori Mahatsa fermented in stainless steel. Light straw colored, it displays an enticing nose of mineral, sea salt, green apple, and pear. Dense and mouth-filling despite being light in body, this crisp, intense, vibrant, lengthy white is totally refreshing. "
91 Points

"Pale straw. Intensely perfumed bouquet evokes sea salt, lime zest and wet stone. Mineral-driven citrus flavors are tightly wound and impressively precise, with a strong salty overtone and excellent clarity. Finishes with impressive stony cut and tangy persistence. There's zero fat on these bones."
