Gaintza Txakolina 2022 White Wine

Package Size6 x 750ml

Txakoli comes from the Basque country on the cool, green Atlantic coast of Spain. Typically it’s a slightly spritzy dry white, with a saline tang, cousin of other Atlantic wines Muscadet and Vinho Verde, it's a natural partner to the abundant local seafood. Four generations of the Lazkano family have produced and sold Txakoli. José Antonio, grandfather of the current owners, used to make wine at home for family consumption and to sell locally, until they set up the Gaintza cellar in 1923. The family have a deep respect for their land and the local traditions but they're also looking ahead, adopting modern technology where the wines benefit. They own 25 hectares of vineyards bathed by the fresh Cantabrian sea air, but protected by the Garate hill. They have a mix of older planting on
high pergolas and newer terraced plantings. They mainly grow Hondarribi Zuri, the most common and traditional grape in Txakoli production, along with some Hondarribi Beltz and Chardonnay.

Their mainstay is the bright, zesty Txakolina. They make a very small quantity of the Gaintza Roses using Hondarribi Beltz a rare cousin of Cabernet Franc from a 1 hectare plot.
