Txakoli Itsasmendi Batberri
The Itsasmendi Winery was born in 1994 through the grouping of several winegrowers whose initial objective was to produce a quality txakoli within the context of white wines in general and transmitting the personal character of our production area to the maximum. Recovering a socio-economic activity as important in Bizkaia as viticulture centuries ago. With an initial three hectares in Muskiz, Bakio and Mendata, a winery with capacity for 25,000 liters was created in Muskiz. In 2003 the Gernika facilities were moved. These years stand out not only for the good acceptance of its Txakoli Itsasmendi among specialized press, restaurateurs and consumers, but also for its capacity for innovation in the realization of new products.
Carbonic maceration with whole bunch without addition of sulfur until bottling and spontaneous fermentation in conical stainless steel tank. Txakoli Batberri transmits the rustic and wild character of Hondarrabi Zuri with personality. Authentic natural flavor of the local variety. Carbonic maceration for 15 days and fermentation of indigenous yeasts. A small step through a white clay amphora refines this Orange txakoli that aims to pay tribute to the most ancient form of production.
Txakoli Batberri is made with HONDARRABI ZURI from a second week maturing plot, located in Gernika at sea level.
Amber hue with golden reflections, typical of carbonic maceration. Very varied aromatic nuances from apricot, grapefruit peel, balsamic and even the nettle plant. Its entry is fresh and its silky and saline mid palate makes it very fast. Subtle tannins, refreshing acidity and slight final bitterness typical of Hondarrabi Zuri. Leaves memories of nuts and stone fruit such as peaches.
