D.O. Bizkaiko Txakolina (Basque Country)
Marko Gure Arbasoak is a white wine from the D.O. Bizkaiko Txakolina by Oxer Basteigieta in Kortezubi, Biscay.
Oxer Belastegi is himself from Kortezubi and began producing Chacolí in the family wineries. They currently work with 5 hectares of vineyards, divided across 8 different plots, all of which are cultivated and worked organically. The planted varieties are the native Hondarribi Zuri, Hondarribi Zuri Zerratie (Petit Corbou), y Iztiriota ttipia (Petit Manseng). The harvest is carried out manually.
Marko Gure Arbasoak is produced using the oldest vineyards. The difference between this wine and Marko, is that this wine ferments in (500litre) barrels where it then ages for 3 months.
Marko Gure Arbasoak is not a regular Chacolí, this is a great white wine with keeping potential. This wine offers a great complexity, from a blend of the soils, grapes and vinification.
