Gaintza Txakolina 2020 - Getariako Txakolina, Spain
Varietals: Hondarrabi Zuri
Bright green-yellow. On the nose, high-toned aromas of lemon, quince, green apple, and sorrel are overlaid with sea spray and stony mineral notes. On the palate, puckering acidity and effervescence lend a practically gulpable appeal, with bright Meyer lemon, apple, and green herbs. Finishes salty and clean, begging for another sip.
The vineyards and cellar are looked after by a small family team. They plant and care for the vines, harvest the grapes, and make and sell the wine. Gaintza has grown throughout the generations and we have hired qualified staff to ensure our business evolves. The txakoli we produce together year after year has created a special bond between all of us. Gaintza has a long and proud history.
Four generations of the Lazkano family have prepared, produced, and distributed txakoli. The family's great-grandfather José Antonio already made txakoli—for family consumption and sale in neighboring villages—from our vines in the Golindo country house. From 1923 when the Gaintza cellar was set up through to the latest extension in 2012, we have undergone a constant transformation with an eye to the future.
