Home Winery Hiruzta Berezia



NAME: Hiruzta Berezia is a contemporary-style Txakoli made from the Hondarrabi Zuri grape grown at the winery’s own vineyards in Hondarribia. This Txakoli expresses the nature of the soil where the grapes are grown at the Hiruzta estate, which together with the unique mild Atlantic climate ensures a characterful and highly original wine that combines tradition with modernity.

DENOMINATION OF ORIGIN: Getariako Txakolina.

VINEYARD: The winery’s own 11 ha. vineyard is located in the surroundings of the winery itself, at the foothills of Jaizkibel Mountain. It is oriented towards the mid-day sun which protects it from the wind and damp of the nearby Cantabrian sea, thereby enjoying excellent sunshine. Trellis grown vineyard using double Guyot training system. Plantation layout: 2.60 x 1.20 (4,000 strains/hectare). Soil with a thick bedrock layer and clayish marly.

VARIETY: 85% Hondarrabi Zuri and 15% Gros Manseng.

TYPE: White Txakoli aged on the lees.

PROCESS: Grapes selected for harvesting at a small Hondarrabi Zuri vineyard with the finest maturing conditions and loaded into small crates. Destemming and crushing, followed by gentle pressing. Cold racking at 8º to 10º C. Fermentation at a controlled temperature of between 16º and 18º C. Aged on the lees in tanks for four months and stirred without aeration once a week. Gentle clarification and stabilisation.

TASTING NOTES: Lovely pale yellow colour with glints of green and rich aromas of white (apple), citrus (grapefruit) and tropical (pineapple) fruits, cloaked in a subtle floral perfume. Very fresh in the mouth with a well-integrated acidity and the full-bodied quality associated with this variety, enhanced by the ageing on the lees. Long, enveloping, aromatic and very persistent finish.

GASTRONOMY: Appetisers, hors d’oeuvres, mild cheeses, shellfish, fish, rice and pulses. Serving temperature: 8º to 10ºC. Store in a well-ventilated cool dark place. Good development in the bottle for three to four years.
