Pack “base” 6 bottles Txakoli Gorka Izagirre
1 Bottle Zura
Zura was born in the Gorka Izagirre cellars from the desire to wrap our Hondarrabi Zerratia variety with a clean and light oak that respects the character and personality of our grape. The must ferments in a 5,000-litre French oak vat, where, after becoming wine, it is aged on its fine lees. It is batoned daily for 10 months until the desired combination of fruit, wood and lees is reached, and then it matures in the bottle for long months. A wine with its own personality, refined and full-bodied that combines perfectly with the most varied dishes, which will grow in nuances and intensity over time.
Golden yellow color with greenish reflections; clean and intense aromas of ripe white fruit and citrus reminiscent of pink grapefruit. We also appreciate the toasted bread and pastries that denote its time in wood. Powerful and glyceric on the palate with a base of ripe apple together with notes of citrus and tropical fruits accompanied by subtle smokiness together with toasted and butter notes, all wrapped in a fresh acidity that augurs long life and fantastic evolution. Intense and tasty.
1 Bottle G22
The Gorka Izagirre G22 txakoli is the result of patience, tasting and observation. Several years have been needed to create this special coupage. The best of the winery’s estates have been brought together in the G22 txakoli. The aging has been carried out on its lees for several months to obtain a wine with a fantastic evolutionary capacity.
In sight, the Txakoli G22 is clean, iridescent, with an extremely elegant presence. Yellow clothing with green, intense and bright reflections that highlight its freshness. On the nose, intense and persistent. A start of pear, ripe apple and pink grapefruit. Second level, greater complexity combining white floral essences with hints of lemon balm, lime blossom, white nettle and fennel seeds. All this covered by the pastry touches that its long aging on lees gives it. In the mouth, a friendly and subtle attack. The always pleasant sensation of fruit gives way to floral and balsamic essences.
1 Bottle ILUN (red txakoli)
Txakoli ILUN by Gorka Izagirre is the latest creation from this winery in Larrabetzu (Bizkaia). It has been made 100% with Hondarribi Beltza, a little-known autochthonous variety that is on the verge of extinction. It stands out for its freshness, uniqueness and its pure Atlantic character. ILUN ‘dark’ and ‘god of the night’ in Basque takes us to a little-known part of the world of txakoli, to a place that was forgotten, and that little by little is recovering its place.
Txakoli ILUN has a light layer, it has a cherry color with a beautiful violet rim. It has a high aromatic intensity, marking from the beginning the typicity of the variety and its Atlantic origin. Its herbaceous nature is covered by aromas of red fruits such as currant and raspberry and with an elegantly spicy touch. The attack is light and very friendly, with a soft and velvety step. The perfectly balanced mouth fills with red fruit and herbaceous flavors with a fresh balsamic finish. A very easy to drink wine that invites you to take the next glass.
Txakoli ILUN pairs perfectly with sausages and white meats as well as fish.
3 Bottle Gorka Izagirre Young
Representative of the modern txakolis of Bizkaia, Gorka Izagirre is made up of the blend of 50% of our autochthonous varieties Hondarrabi Zuri and Hondarrabi Zerratia, obtained from 21 hectares of vineyards that we cultivate with care, in 10 plots spread over 7 municipalities scattered throughout Bizkaia.
A differentiated elaboration of each plot allows us to extract its full potential in order to achieve the perfect pieces that assemble a fresh, cheerful, aromatic wine but with a body and structure that surprises when drunk.
At sight it has a beautiful straw yellow color, with green reflections and metallic iridescence. On the nose it combines a base of fresh apple with the herbaceous ferns with hints of white flower (Linden) and a subtle touch of citrus. Its palate is round, glyceride, displaying a fresh sensation of fruit that leads to a slightly bitter dry fruit finish perfectly integrated into the whole.
