Characteristics of Juanjo Tellaetxe Tantaka

Juanjo Tellaetxe Tantaka is a white wine aged on lees made with the Hondarribi Zuri variety in the D.O. Arabako-txakolina (Basque Country) by Juanjo Tellaetxe.

Juanjo Tellaetxe made his dream a reality when he implemented his work philosophy in the Arrastaria Valley vineyards (Álava) to make honest wines with a strong local character. To do that, the Tantaka winery is committed to using native varieties, cultivated in an environmentally-respectful way and with minimum intervention in the winery.

Juanjo Tellaetxe Tantaka comes from vineyards in a spectacular location. These are vineyards planted in alluvial and clay-limestone soils 330 metres above sea level and influenced by a continental climate. They use organic agriculture and techniques from last century that do not harm the environment. When the grape is ready, it is manually harvested.

In the winery, the Juanjo Tellaetxe Tantaka grapes ferment in stainless steel tanks with native yeasts at a controlled temperature. Then the wine is allowed to rest on its lees for 5 months.

Juanjo Tellaetxe Tantaka is the result of reviving a traditional way of working, where honesty in production and respect for the environment are the two key priorities. A pure Txacoli.

Designation of Origin D.O. Arabako-Txakolina

Álava, the region located in the south of the Basque Country, is known above all for its red wines produced in the vineyards within the DOCa Rioja. Truthfully, for centuries, nobody considered txakolí wine seriously, 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.
