Gorka Izagirre Txakoli 42 Zura
This product is currently sold out.
Producing stunning wines from the Basque Country’s famous Hondarrabi Zuri and Hondarrabi Zerratia grapes, Gorza Izagirre is one of the best known Txakolí producers with 40 hectares of vines (across small plots) on their estate on the precipitous, rolling countryside surrounding Bilbao. The small, yet perfectly formed timber clad winery is where their precious grapes are turned into pure, modern Txakoli with a distinctive precision and mineral twang. The winery also owns a rather splendid 3 Michelin-starred restaurant, where these stunning wines compliment the world-class food on offer.
Renowned chef Eneko Atxa oversees the kitchen at the Azurmendi restaurant - in the grounds of the Gorka Izagirre winery. The winery decided to honour him with this wine - the first to use French oak casks at the winery. 42 refers to the number of days the first vintage spent in oak.
Gorka Izagirre Txakolí 42 Zura has ripe citrus fruit aromas, with light notes of brioche from the period spent in oak. The palate has citrus and some tropical fruit notes - with lightly toasted, saline and savoury characters and fresh acidity. Perfect with fish but will also match poultry dishes.
