MARKO Gure Arbasoak
Txakoli MARKO Gure Arbasoak shows the full potential of regional grapes when harvested later and vinified like a still wine. The result is a more serious and mature style txakoli.
The vineyards are located in the Bizkaino town of Kortezubi, a small and old enclave of the Urdaibai reserve, known for its prehistoric caves, declared a World Heritage Site by Unesco. The terrain of the vineyard is calcareous clay.
The fermentation of Marko Gure Arbasoak 2016 is spontaneous with indigenous yeasts, without filtering or clarifying. The wine spends ten months in contact with the fine lees (barrel and tank), using the bâtonnage technique, which gives it a special character.
Very fresh wine on the palate, dominated by aromas of green apple, citrus and herbaceous notes (fennel and bay leaf). The time spent on its lees ensures that the wine ends with an enveloping smoothness.
What keeps his name
The Basques have great respect for nature, as well as for the homes in which they live. They even give them names. Marko is the name of the Oxer family home, surrounded by the vineyard used to make this wine. MARKO Gure Arbasoak txakoli is a tribute to the Bastegieta family home.
