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 2017 vintage was a challenging one that, nevertheless, yielded an excellent result. September was colder and rainier than usual. Thus, the resulting wine was intensely aromatic and well-structured.

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 2017 should be drunk over the next 18 months.

Additional Information

Appearance

Nose

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

Palate

This white txacolí wine from the Basque Country is fresh, elegant and linear. Notions of ripe white fruit and citrus, a touch of bitter herbs and some remembrances of fennel. Very good acidity and long, cheerful finish. 

Our personal opinion

The crisp, inviting Itsasmendi 2017 immeditaly brings to mind images of the beautiful Basque Country landscape.

  1. txakolli review by Mr. Demanding on 6/11/2018
    Value

    A not-so-trivial Txakolí. It has bones and some substance, yet it remains fresh.

    Dry and smooth. Drinks easy. Great with tapas.
