Txakoli Marko Late Harvest
Txakoli MARKO LATE HARVEST is one of the few late harvest wines made in the area. With its ability to concentrate sugar while maintaining its high acidity, Izkiota Txikia is the perfect variety for a very high quality, sweet aroma wine.
The vineyards are located in the town of Kortezubi, a small and ancient enclave of Bizkaia, known for its prehistoric caves, declared a World Heritage Site by Unesco. The terrain of the vineyard is calcareous clay.
Fermentation occurs spontaneously when the whole grape is pressed. The grapes ferment in 350 barrels and remain on their lees for 4 to 5 months.
It is a very complex wine, with an intense flavor of quince, ripe peach and orange peel. In the mouth it is long. It is a wine to drink now and keep for many years.
