50% Hondarrabi Zuri and 50% Hondarrabi Beltza, from estate vineyards located at the foothills of Jaizkibel Mountain in Hondarribia, a picturesque fishing village in Basque Country to which the Hondarrabi grape owes its name. The tiny Getariako Txakolina D.O. (only 430 hectares planted, shared by just a little over 30 wineries) was created in 1990.

The grapes are destemmed and crushed with a soft pressing. The must is cold settled at 8 – 10ºC. The resulting wine is stored in tanks at a low temperature while maintaining the naturally occurring carbonation. After a gentle clarification and stabilization, the wine is sterile filtered and bottled at a low temperature.

The wine offers rich aromas of red and black fruits, such as strawberries, blackberries and black currants, over a citrus background and discreet herbal notes. Balanced and fresh, with a long aromatic finish. 12% alcohol.
