Doniene Gorrondona Txakoli 2019
Doniene is situated in Spain's Basque region, right beside the seaside on the green cliffs above the Bay of Biscay.
Doniene were one of the pioneers in the revial of Txacoli, in the 90s. They only use
the indigenous grapes Hondarrabi Zuri and Hondarrabi Beltza. Their vineyards have the sea on one side and the ocean on the other, creating fantastically distinctive wines with real freshness and noticeable salinity.
The wines are quite different from anything else in Spain really - more similar to Vinho Verde than anything else. Zingy green apple, peardrop, citrus and mineral/saline flavours with a light, fresh finish.
Grape: Hondarrabi Zuri
Region: Spain, Basque, Bakio
