Zuri Txakolina 2014
Bodega Hirutza Zuri 2014 Getariako Txakolina, Spain
93% Hondarrabi Zuri. 7% Gros Manseng
Winemaking: Grapes harvested and transported in small crates. Destemming and crushing followed by rinsing and soft pressing. Cold static settling of the first must at 8 to 10º C. Storage in tanks at a low temperature to maintain the naturally occurring carbonation. Gentle clarification and stabilisation. Sterile bottling and filtration though microbial stabilisation at a low temperature.
Tasting Notes: Clean and bright. Pale yellow colour with greenish glints against the light. When poured into the glass from a certain height, reveals the presence of tiny carbonation bubbles typically associated with this type of txakoli. Intense aromas of white (pear and apple), citrus and tropical fruits on the nose, enveloped in the perfume of white flowers, all accentuated by the subtle effervescence of natural carbon dioxide gas. Balanced and fresh in the mouth, it has quite a sharp taste with well-integrated acidity. Agreeable on the palate with hints of citrus and tropical fruits in the aftertaste. Long, aromatic finish
Pairing: Appetizers, hors d’oeuvres, mild cheeses, shellfish, fish, rice and pulses.
