Gorka Izagirre Bizkaiko Txakolina 2020
This intensely aromatic white is made with traditional Basque varieties, and is a great match for a variety of seafood dishes.
This Spanish wonder greets you initially with intense pear and citrus blossom aromas on the nose. The palate is flooded with well-integrated acidity and flavours of red apple, tangerine and lime. With its spritzy nature, it is the ultimate refreshing crisp white. Try it for yourself to discover why this wine is served in Michelin Star restaurants across the globe.
Making txakoli white wine was once a common tradition in early farm houses or caserios of the Basque Country. In 2005, the family founders of Bodega Gorka Izagirre wanted to bring back this wine making tradition in Biscay. Michelin Star Chef Eneko Atxa and his uncle Gorka Izagirre envisioned a project that would bring together the region’s best gastronomy and preserve the local grape varietals. Their goal was to apply modern technology and sustainable techniques while staying true to tradition and roots.
