A North Star with a Cantabrian nerve
At Itsasmendi, we practice sustainable viticulture aiming to integrate the vineyard harmoniously into every ecosystem and, as a result, nature gives us grapes with a distinctive quality. Ongoing study of the ecological variables has led us to discover diverse specific situations in the vineyards. Placing special emphasis on this richness provided by the natural environment and our vinicultural philosophy, the originality of Artizar lies in having the freedom necessary each year to choose small areas and vinicultural details that are at times imperceptible, so they can express themselves to the full in this new Txakoli.
The force of nature revealing unimagined horizons
The originality of this wine lies in its freedom to chart its own course each vintage: the aim is to discover the means to showcase the viticultural and winemaking details and little corners, at times imperceptible in larger volumes of production but that characterize each vintage, so they can find full expression.
Made in stainless steel with 13 months aging on the lees, seeking to reveal the distinctive acidity of this grape.
Golden glints, just like a star. Its intense initial fragrance of ripe fruit and yellow flowers brings out underlying balsamic tones and those of aromatic herbs from the Atlantic countryside. It shows the contrast between the warmth of September in 2016 and the freshness of the Atlantic breeze. It is silky as it enters the mouth, long-lived, potent, fresh, direct and full-bodied. It has a finish which is reminiscent of stone fruit, lime, with a touch of toffee.
