Doniene Gorrondona are part of a small group of young Basque wineries who are elevating the classic, lean and dry styles of Txakoli traditionally poured from a great height in the tiny bars in San Sebastian, into, thankfully, a more serious style of wine. They've crafted a brilliant style here concentrating on organic farming techniques (almost unheard of in the region) and are careful with clonal and site selection, using slopes to aid in drainage, aspects facing the Cantabrian coastline, Pergola trained vines to aid in airflow and completely forgoing commercial yeasts. The result is seriously good, and seriously drinkable wine...

This Txakoli is made from the traditional Basque varietals of Hondurabi Zuri (85%) with little bits of Iskirita Zuri Hadia (11%) and a handful of friends. It’s handpicked and fermented with indigenous yeasts in stainless steel, kept on lees for six months before being lightly filtered, and bottled.

Tasting Note:
This is something out of the ordinary. Its wonderfully saline and mineral, a perfect match for the food of the region. On the nose there is plenty of cut grass, pine leaves, fresh lime leaf, nashi pear and white floral aromatics. The palate is clean, lean and tight, driven by a refreshing hit of citric acid with notes of bread and everything wonderful from the nose. This is a wine you need to try if you love Riesling, or high acid whites!

This is a Dry, Medium bodied wine with High acidity and No tannin. It is Medium+ in it's intensity with Medium alcohol and a Long finish.
