2020 is more balanced than 2019, with excellent, fully developed fruit, good structure, and refreshing acidity. In Spain’s coastal Basque Country, “Xarmant” (char-mant) means ‘charming’ and txakoli is the joyous, light, white wine shared amongst friends with northern Spain’s legendary cuisine. Xarmant is made from the highest quality, sustainably-farmed, estate vineyards from the verdant Amurrio valley in the Basque Country, close to the Bay of Biscay on Spain’s rugged, green northern coast. Its proximity to the Atlantic Ocean creates a unique, ideal microclimate to produce this ‘charming’ wine.
Artomaña Txakolina is located near the town of Amurrio at 350m elevation in the verdant Orduña Valley in the foothills of the Sierra Salvada mountains. The village is next to the Nervión river before the magnificent waterfall of Salto del Nervión drops over 270m, one of the highest and most beautiful waterfalls in all of Western Europe. The Orduña Valley faces the Atlantic Ocean, where its proximity creates a unique, ideal microclimate. The valley forms the geological and climatic border between the Castilian plateau and the Nervión river basin. The dominant wind is north-northwest, which is cool and loaded with humidity from the Cantabrian Sea. On the hottest days of summer, the sea breeze arrives midday to cool the vines. Artomaña utilizes a blend of sustainably grown estate grapes, the traditional varieties indigenous to the Basque region: Hondarrabi zuri with gros manseng, petit manseng, and petit corbu.
