Keep it natural, baby.
The soil of the small Uriondo vineyard is predominantly a clay and sand mixture allowing for a good retention of nutrients. The vineyard, heavily influenced by the Atlantic climate, is comprised of the local grapes Hondarribi Zuri, Mune Mahatsa and Txori Mahatsa. In the winery, only indigenous yeast is used to initiate fermentation. With the exception of the Txori Mahatsa, the grapes are fermented in stainless steel tanks. The Txori Mahatsa is barrel fermented separately in American oak.
Centered around Bilbao on Spain's north coast, this D.O. Bizkaiko Txakolina is as unique as the Basque culture that surrounds it. The native Hondarribi Zuri grape occupies 80 percent of the vineyards. Other varieties grown include Mune Mahatsa and Txori Mahatsa. Soils are sandy and loose alluvial over a clay and limestone base. Coastal vineyards are planted on steep slopes to shed the excess rainfall provided by the maritime climate. The wines show a crisp, green-fruit style with fresh acidity.
