Characteristics of Itsasmendi

Itsasmendi is a Txacolí made by Bodegas Itsamendi in Bizcaiko Txacolina.

This white wine is a blend of the indigenous varieties, Hondarrabi Zuri and Hondarrabi Zuri zerratie. The grapes come from several small plots located in the Biosphere Reserve of Urdaibai, in the province of Vizcaya in the Basque Country.

The soils in different plots are diverse, containing limestone, marl and calcareous rocks. This variety of soils means that Txacolí obtains all the typical characteristics and uniqueness of the area.

The climate is influenced by the Cantabrian Sea, with mild winters and cool summers. It has a large rainfall, concentrated especially in spring time when special care is needed in the vineyard.

By the late summer and early fall, the nights become fresh and days are mild,providing a proper maturation of the grapes.

Bodegas Itsamendi practices farming committed to the environment, respecting the existing plant diversity on the perimeter and on the plot.

A young, fresh, fruity and markedly Atlantic Txacoli.

Reviews

D.O. Bizkaiko Txakolina

Winery Itsasmendi

The truth is that for many centuries, nobody gave txakolí wine serious consideration, and very few mourned its disappearance. Compared to powerful wines with a higher alcohol content, txakolí was considered a ‘little’ local wine (‘vinillo’) of little interest. For a long time, a wine’s alcohol content was its only introduction. There were periods where still very poor production methods had not allowed the varieties to speak for themselves, and what’s more, txakolí forms part of a family economy at the same home-grown level as meat, milk and fish. In addition, the txacolí industry has not been advanced or prepared enough to rigorously produce this small oenological joy until the last few decades.
