This new adventure has been recently tasted by the renowned publication, where the taster for the Spanish country, Luis Guitierrez, has described our sparkling Txakoli as follows:

 

 “… It's super tasty, with depth and complexity, quite surprising for such a young wine, sharp and long. What makes it stand apart from the majority of sparkling wines is the salinity. Really surprising! 13,000 bottles produced.”

This new rating place our IZAR-LEKU as the best sparkling Txakoli in The Wine Advocate-Robert Parker.

IZAR-LEKU

We began in 2015 our Izar-Leku Mahastiak project, which brought together the Zapiain & López de Lacalle families. With the help and experience of Inaxio Manterola, a wine-grower in Zarautz, we now grow 3.75 hectares (9.26 acres) of Hondarrabi Zuri y Beltza grapes, from which we produce a sparkling wine with txakoli as its base wine.

The result is Izar-Leku, a sparkling wine packed with natural energy which after a long ageing in bottle produces a wine with great aromatic complexity and an attractive distinct saline minerality.
