Txakoli AMA Gorka Izagirre
Txakoli AMA is the latest creation of the Gorka Izagirre Winery. A selection of Hondarrabi Zerratia grapes with an exceptional point of maturity that was harvested on October 23, 2015, in one of the warmest harvests remembered in Bizkaia. AMA, which means “mother” in Basque, takes us back to the origin, the land, the warmth, the strength, the simplicity, the elegance and the exclusivity. A wine that arouses feelings and shows a new horizon in the evolution of the txakolis in Bizkaia. A mature, subtle and enveloping wine with a complexity that surprises when you drink it.
Starting from the tear must, 90% were fermented in stainless steel and 10% in new fine-grained French oak barrels. After aging for 2 months on the lees, the resulting wines were joined to be matured in the tank for 22 months.
In sight golden yellow, clean and bright. Yellow garment that stands out for its elegance and highlights the maturity of the wine. Medium high intensity on the nose, very subtle, a start with violet flowers and milflores honey. In the second line we denote hydrocarbons and flint stone. The palate presents smoked, Cantaloup melon, light toffee and hydrocarbons. It is fatty, enveloping and wide. In retronasal light smoked, pastry cream and lemon leaf stand out. A wine that stands out for its elegance and complexity.
