Bodega K5 Arginano Txakolina 2015
The winery was designed by the architects at Alonso & Balaguer. The building is a perfect compliment to the natural landscape while respecting all of its natural surroundings.
The vineyards, 100% Hondarribi Zuri, grow at 300mts above sea level in mineral rich soils of chalk, limestone, and shale. The Atlantic climate marks a major character, based on the influences of the Bay of Biscay and the altitude, which provides for higher temperature ranges resulting in better aeration and a natural freshness. For maximum concentration of aromas and flavors, the grape production is on trellises framework while grape yields are kept low with averages between 1.5 and 2.0 kg. These factors are what provide an unprecedented personality to "K5" and "K Pilota" that distinguishes it from other wines.
On the southern edge of the rocky Bay of Biscay in northern Spain, this is Basque country and home to the refreshing and slightly effervescent (usually) white wine, Txakoli. Three subregions compose the larger one: Getariako Txakolina, Bizkaiko Txakolina and Arabako Txakolina. While Hondarribi Zuri and Hondarrabi Beltza are the main grape varieties, other French varieties are scattered throughout the region.
Beyond the usual suspects, there are hundreds of white grape varieties grown throughout the world. Some are indigenous specialties capable of producing excellent single varietal wines, while others are better suited for use as blending grapes. Each has its own distinct viticultural characteristics, as well as aroma and flavor profiles, offering much to be discovered by the curious wine lover. In particular, Portugal, Spain, Italy and Greece are known for having a multitude of unique varieties but they can really be found in any region.
