Bodegas Aizpurua is a small, family-owned and operated winery in the Txakoli de Getaria DO of Spain. Situated in the verdant and high mountain slopes of Meagas along the famous El Camino de Santiago, the family has been growing grapes and making their wines for several generations (since 1834). Just 14 hectares of sustainably-farmed vines (ranging from 7 years, to well over 50 years old) that are overhead trained to encourage air to flow under the grape clusters, maintaining the traditional practices of the surrounding wine region to obtain their classic Txakoli.
Aizpurua Txakoli comes from the oldest and furthest north Txakoli zone, from the estate’s sustainably farmed Hondarrabi Zuri vines. This classically styled Txakoli was fermented at very low temperatures using only naturally occurring yeasts. With only time in stainless steel, it is incredibly fresh and zippy, complemented by slight effervescence that is common in this Basque region white wine. Clean and approachable with ample tart fruit and an exciting mouth-feel (delicate spritz), this wine has a quality of the briny sea and is perfect with many types of fresh shellfish, however can also pair beautifully with, and cut right through rich and hearty meats.
