Producer Note
The Hiruzta project was launched by the Rekalde Family, with the aim of restoring the
tradition of Txakoli production in Hondarribia. The town lends its name to the grape
variety from which Txakoli is produced - the Hondarrabi Zuri. The tradition of
producing this wine was lost in the 17th century, but is now being restored thanks to
the Hiruzta project and involvement of resident oenologist Ana Martin, a key figure in
the project. She is renowned for her professional expertise in creating outstanding
white wines and Txakolis and her work has garnered countless awards.


Vineyard
Hiruzta (pronounced "Ir-rosster") is an estate winery. The grapes are grown in their 11
hectare single vineyard, located at the foothills of Jaizkibel mountain, just 500 metres
away from the Cantabric Sea. The salty sea breeze influence is one of the main
characteristics that can be appreciated in the Hiruzta Txakoli (pronounced
"Chaccoli"). The climate is wet and rainy, so the vines are planted in a south-westerly
orientation to maximise the potential sunshine onto the vines and to protect from the
winds and damp conditions from the nearby sea. The double Guyot trained vines
are planted at a density of 4,000 per hectare. Trellises are used to avoid the high
humidity, to increase airflow and to gain more exposure to the sunlight during the
day. The soils have a thick bedrock layer and are clayish marl.


Winemaking
Vinified in Hirutza's state-of-the-art winery. The manually harvested grapes were
destemmed, crushed, rinsed and gently pressed. Cold static settling then took place
at 8 to 10°C, prior to fermentation in stainless steel tanks at controlled low
temperatures. The wine was stored in tanks at a cool temperature to maintain the
naturally occurring carbonic gas. Gently clarified and stabilised before bottling.


Tasting Note
Rich aromas of crisp apples, pear, grapefruit and tropical pineapple are enhanced
by a subtle, natural effervescence. Balanced and fresh on the palate, it has the
slight characteristic of a pearl wine with a well integrated crisp acidity, hints of citrus
and tropical fruits and a long aromatic finish.
