This txakoli is marketed under the “Eukeni” brand in memory of the work carried out by Eugenio Alava in order to recover the txakolinera tradition in the Aiala region. Eugenio was the forerunner of the current D.O. “Arabako Txakolina-Txakoli de Alava”. His children and nephews try through this small tribute that his legacy remains alive and can be transmitted to future generations.
In the 2009-2010 campaign, the winery launched its first batch of Txakoli Eukeni made with a selection of the best quality grapes from the native variety “Hondarrabi Zuri”: a white txakoli with a marked fresh, bright and fruity varietal character and alcohol content around 12º, which preserves light notes of carbonic characteristic of fermentation. The incorporation of cryomaceration in the production process notably intensifies the aromas that erupt impetuously when uncorking.
Due to its freshness and acidity it is especially recommended to accompany fish, shellfish and white meat, although it is also an excellent alternative to be enjoyed alone, as an aperitif. In any case, the temperature to be served should not exceed 5-7 degrees. It is recommended to keep it cool in an ice bucket during your tasting.
