2018 Bizkaiko Txakolina (Gorrondona, Doniene)

Doniene Gorrondona, Txakoli, Bizkaiko Txakolina, Spain, 2018

85% Hondarribi Zuri, 12% Mune Mahatsa (Folle Blanche) and 3% Hondarribi Beltza

TART KIWI & GREEN APPLE, DRY & RAZORY, FLINTY MINERAL

Taking it's name from the Bay of Biscay, the Bizkaiko zone of Txakolina production brings us, perhaps, the most diversity stylistically. This example has only the faintest touch of the spritz that Txakoli is famous for, but retains the insanely pronounced minerality and refreshingly tangy fruit. Flavorful and chiseled in structure, this delicate white subtly layers aromas of melon and kiwi with the trademark tart apple and lime flavors of this Basque-tastic wines.

Serving Suggestion: Mackerel sashimi. Salsa verde. Shrimp ceviche w/ garlic and salty chorizo.

2017 Txakolina Baltza (Gorrondona, Doniene)

Doniene Gorrondona, Txakolina Baltza, Pay Basque, Spain, 2017

100% Hondarribi Beltza

PERFUMY & HERBACEOUS, DAMSON PLUM, SILKY

This is an extremely rare wine from 150-year-old Hondarribi Beltza vines grown in the tiny Aldape vineyard farmed by Gorrondona. Fans of Cabernet Franc will be pleased to be introduced to Hondarribi Beltza, a close relative. Although it boasts bold bell pepper, cocoa, and tobacco, this wine remains fresh and drinkable with plenty of bright red fruit and a medium body. Serving suggestions: Stewed lamb heavy with peppers and spices. Sheep's milk cheeses such as Pecorino, Itorki, Ossau-Iraty, and Idiazabal.
