Gaintza Getariako Txakoli Rose 2019
The Lazkano family own 25 hectares of vineyards in Getaria in the Basque Country. The climate here is cool maritime, not reaching much higher than 11 degrees Celsius, and with 1000-1700mm of rain each year. The grapes for this wine are planted in a single one hectare plot. Vines are between 40 and 50 years old and are planted high on pergolas to keep them aerated in the damp climate. Soils are layers of limestone and sandstone alternating with clay loams.
Fresh red cherry and cranberry on the nose. Refreshing in the mouth with a slight spritz which is typical to Txakoli wines.
Grape: Hondarrabi Zuri, Hondarrabi Beltza
Region: Spain, Basque
