Sobre Izar-Leku Brut Vintage

Izar-Leku Brut Vintage is a sparkling wine made by the traditional method with the Hondarribi Zuri and Hondarribi Beltza varieties in the Basque Country by Artadi.

Artadi, one of the great Spanish wineries, came into being in 1986 out of the desire of a group of wine growers from the Rioja Alavesa to produce authentic wines with a distinctive character. Headed by Juan Carlos López de Lacalle, they joined forces and 30 years later they’ve become a group with three quality wineries: Bodegas y Viñedos Artadi in Laguardia (Rioja Alavesa), Bodegas y Viñedos Artazu in the D.O. Navarre and Bodegas y Viñedos El Sequé in the D.O. Alicante.

Izar-Leku Brut Vintage originated on vineyards located in the town of Zarautz (Guipúzcua), set on slopes of clay soil with slate and basalt. They’re vines of the native hondarribi zuri and hondarribi beltza varieties, which are cultivated using respectful agriculture and the grapes are harvested manually and placed in 10 kg boxes.

At the winery, Izar-Leku Brut Vintage is made using the traditional or Champenoise method. Firstly, the grapes macerate in the cold for 24-48 hours and then, pressed, they ferment in stainless steel tanks for about 10 days at a constant temperature of 16ºC. The base wine remains there on its lees for 6 months. Then the tirage is carried out for subsequent bottle fermentation and remains in stacking for 30 months. Finally it’s disgorged without adding expedition liquor.

Made with the typical txacolí varieties, Izar-Leku Brut Vintage is a sparkling wine whose name means "the place of the stars" and which surprises due to its freshness, acidity and minerality.
2018 Izar-Leku Brut Vintage 2018 is a sparkling wine that on the nose offers aromas reminiscent of apples accompanied by nuances of toasted bread and attractive mineral notes. The palate has fine bubbles and refreshing citrus and subtly saline nuances. A full-bodied and vibrant sparkling wine.
2016 Izar-Leku Brut Vintage 2016 is a mature sparkling wine with a fine, well-defined bubble. The nose shows complex aromatic notes of citrus and peppermint. On the palate it’s ample, creamy and very enveloping.
