The Surprise, the sweet flavour of Biscay
Itsasmendi Urezti has been included in the Ark of Taste of Slow Food Bizkaia, as during the first 4 years it was not covered by the D.O. Bizkaiko txakolina, as an artisan product of verified excellence, manufactured on a small scale.
Highlighting the intrinsic value of the products offered by the land. In the same style as its sister wines produced along the Atlantic Arc to which we belong, such as the well-known Sauternes, Barsac and Jurancon. Whereas the rest of the wines show the importance of each plot, this wine is a product that perfectly reflects our autumn, south wind, cool nights and many years of low rainfalls.
The grapes are over-ripened on the vines themselves and harvested throughout November. In production since 2001. A bright golden yellow, the bouquet highlights its complexity, combining the aromas of the overripe grape, orange peel, pear, wax, honey with spiced notes from its brief spell in the barrel. Its time in the bottle has given it a palate that is sweet, long, dense, unctuous and lasting, with a good balance between residual sugars and acidity.
A Late Harvest from the North with a perfect balance between acidity and sweetness
Varieties: Hondarrabi zuri zerratie and a small percentage of Izkiriot handi.
The extended ripening of the grapes on the vine results in a natural raisining. Harvested on the 26th of November.
The first Late Harvest under the DO “Bizkaiko Txakolina” the inaugural vintage in 2001.
A brief stint through French oak barrels of 3 months and another month plus aging in foudre.
Straw yellow with atypical green reflections in it but which visually represents this cold vintage that was 2019.
On the palate it has a soft entry that delights us with the harmony shown by the sweetness and marked acidity of this vintage. To end leaves a refreshing memory of nuts and pineapple caramel.
