Tasting notes

Nice, yellow straw-coloured with a green shine and metallic iridescence. A highly intense aroma. It combines a base of fresh apple and balsamic wrap with touches of Linden flower and a subtle hint of citrus. It has a perfectly integrated acidity, which leaves you with a slightly bitter taste. Very lively with body, it is a long lasting wine.

Producer

ARAEX RIOJA ALAVESA S.L.

Vinification and aging

The must is stabilised statically for 36 hours at 10ºC in an inert environment and the purest part of the must is separated to ferment at 14ºC. Following alcoholic fermentation, the wine is racked and tasted. To make the Gorka Izagirre, the variety Hondarrabi Zerratia undergoes sur-lie ageing for approximately 2.5 months to give the wine weight and length on the palate. Once the ageing is over, the final coupage is performed to ensure all the wine to be bottled is homogeneous. The ensuing gradual process of cleaning and bottling of the Basque white wine lasts for an entire year.

Terroir

The coastal air, steep hilly slopes, southeast morning sun, well-aerated plots green lush hillsides impart a unique freshness and character to our wines.
