PRODUCER: Txakoli comes from the Basque country on the cool, green Atlantic coast of Spain. Typically it’s a slightly spritzy dry white with a saline tang, cousin of those other great Atlantic wines Muscadet and Vinho Verde, it's a natural partner to the abundant local seafood. Four generations of the Lazkano family have produced and sold Txakoli. José Antonio, grandfather of the current owners, used to make wine at home for family consumption and to sell locally, until they set up the Gaintza cellar in 1923. The family have a deep respect for their land and the local traditions but they're also looking ahead, adopting modern technology to improve quality.
WINEMAKING: Following sustainable farming methods and always with the environment in mind. Grapes are picked by hand. Fermentation is in stainless steel vats with temperature control, using natural yeasts. No ageing.
TASTING NOTE: Fresh red cherry and cranberry on the nose. Refreshing in the mouth with a slight spritz which is typical to Txakoli wines. To create some real pzaz, pour from a great height into a glass to see the fizz!
