Product Description
Details

From the heart of the Basque Country, Itsasmendi is a Spanish white wine produced by Bodegas Itsasmendi.

A traditional, light Txakolí wine, this product is crafted from the indigenous varieties Hondarrabi Zuri and Hondarrabi Zuri Zerrate.

The 2018 vintage was an early one which, all things considered, yielded an excellent result. The grapes achieved a nice ripeness and optimal acidity levels.

Belonging to the Bizkaiko Txakolina Designation of Origin, the grapes were harvested by hand, cold-soaked and fermented in stainless steel tanks.

Following the tradition, this white wine from the Basque Country was not aged in oak in order to preserve its freshness and finesse.

Utterly atlantic and extremely versatile, Itsasmendi 2018 should be drunk over the next 18 months.

Appearance

The white wine Itsasmendi has a bright, clean straw yellow colour with a golden rim,

Nose

This young Txakolí by Bodega Itsasmendi conveys honest, pleasant aromas of citrus, white fruit, wet grass and aniseed.

Palate

This white wine from the DO Bizkaiko Txakolinais fresh, elegant and linear. Notions of ripe white fruit and citrus, a touch of bitter herbs and some remembrances of fennel. This Txakolí from the Basque Country has a very good acidity and long, cheerful finish. 

Our personal opinion

The crisp, inviting Itsasmendi 2018 brings to mind images of the beautiful Basque Country landscape.

A not-so-trivial Txakolí. It has bones and some substance, yet it remains fresh. Review by Mr. Demanding (Posted on 11/06/2018)
