Txakoli Ieup Barrica
Bodega Magalarte’s 9 hectares of vineyards are located in the Greater Bilbao Area, in the heart of the Txorierri Valley, specifically in the municipality of Lezama, a town with potential for industrial and tourist development due to its proximity to Bilbao and good communications by road, train, sea and air.
The climate is mesothermal, moderate in terms of temperatures and rainy, called temperate / humid climate without dry or Atlantic season.
The clay-loam soils on south-facing slopes support our strains of native varieties “Hondarrabi Zuri and” Hondarrabi zuri zerratia “and our minority varieties such as” Petit Manseng “and” Riesling “.
The production of Ieup txakoli begins with a manual harvest, followed by fermentation in French oak barrels and 5 months of aging on lees. The main grape variety used is Hondarribi Zuri and some Izkiriota Txikia (Petit Manseng).
Straw yellow color with greenish tones, clean and bright. Frank and powerful. The aromas of fresh white fruit stand out, assembled with the sweet aniseed tones of the wood. Unctuous, enveloping and fresh, enhancing the toasted aromas of the barrel in the mouth. Wide and long-lasting aftertaste.
