HIRUZTA BASQUE BRUT NATURE WINE TASTING SPEC SHEET

This original sparkling wine is made from Hondarrabi Zuri grapes grown at the winery’s own vineyard and processed via the “méthode traditionnelle” at the winery itself.

DENOMINATION OF ORIGIN: Getariako Txakolina.

VINEYARD: The winery’s own 11 ha. vineyard is located in the surroundings of the winery itself, at the foothills of Jaizkibel Mountain. It is oriented towards the mid-day sun which protects it from the wind and damp of the nearby Cantabrian sea, thereby enjoying excellent sunshine. Trellis grown vineyard using double Guyot training system. Plantation layout: 2.60 x 1.20 (4,000 strains/hectare). Soil with a thick bedrock layer and clayish marly.

TYPE: natural sparkling Brut Nature wine.

PROCESS: Starting with a white wine base made from the Hondarrabi Zuri grape variety grown in our own vineyards and processed at our own winery, this sparkling wine is produced bottle-for-bottle using the “méthode traditionnelle”. Second fermentation takes place at a low temperature for a long period followed by aging on lees in bottles for over 9 months, which are subsequently placed on racks for riddling. These are also disgorged artisanally without freezing the neck, i.e. disgorgement “à la volée”. No liqueur d'expédition is added due to the fact that this is a natural sparkling wine with no sugar added during disgorging (Brut Nature).

TASTING NOTES: Clean and bright. Pale yellow colour with greenish glints against the light. Release of fine bubbles and presence of abundant tiny rosaries with great persistence. Exquisite creamy sustained foam crown and islets covering a large part of the wine surface.
Intense aromas of white (pear and apple) and citric (grapefruit) fruits on a carpet of fennel and country grass, all accentuated by the subtle effervescence of natural carbon dioxide gas.
Balanced and fresh in the mouth, with a pleasant sharp taste due to the carbonic gas in the mouth, with well-integrated acidity. Creamy and agreeable on the palate with citric and fruity notes in the aftertaste. Long aromatic finish.

GASTRONOMY: Appetisers, hors d’oeuvres, mild and lightly-cured cheeses, shellfish, fish, rice, pulses, white meat and desserts. Serving temperature: 5º to 8ºC. Store in a well-ventilated cool dark place free from strange smells. Keeps well in the bottle for up to two years with bottle always in an upright position.
