A bright fruit-bursting wine that emphasises vineyard over bodega, which discards the hackneyed image of Rioja, everything about this wine is intentionally provocative to challenge your view on what Rioja is. Careful. This kitty has claws.

On the nose aromas of green apples, white blossom, lime and greengage; whilst on the palate the wine is bright and racy with citrus acidity and an underlying, mineral and textured character. A poised and well-balanced wine with a refreshing bitter twist on the finish.
Producing stunning wines from Hondarrabi Zuri and Hondarrabi Zerratia grapes, grown on the acidic soils of the Bizkaiko Txakolina DO on the precipitous, rolling countryside surrounding Bilbao. Gorza Izagirre are the largest producer of Txakoli in the DO, with some virtiginous slopes on their 40 hectares estate. The small, yet perfectly formed timber clad winery is where their precious grapes are turned into pure, modern Txakoli with a distinctive precision and mineral twang. It just so happens that Gorka Izagirre also own a rather splendid 3 Michelin starred restaurant, tipped for an imminent entry into ‘The World’s 50 Best Restaurants’.
