Txakoli ILUN Gorka Izagirre
Txakoli ILUN by Gorka Izagirre is the latest creation from this winery in Larrabetzu (Bizkaia). It has been made 100% with Hondarribi Belleza, a very little known and endangered native variety. 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 robe, has a cherry color with a beautiful violet rim. It has a high aromatic intensity, marking from the beginning the typicality 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 mid palate. The perfectly balanced mouth is full of red fruit and herbaceous flavors with a fresh balsamic finish. A very easy to drink wine that invites you to have the next glass.
Txakoli ILUN pairs perfectly with both cold cuts and white meats as well as fish.
