Bengoetxe, 'Bengoetxe', Getariako Txakolina DO, 2019, Basque Country, Spain


There is lush lemony fruit, hints of grains, a touch of chamomile too in this uniquely savory Txakoli wine with lovely weight and mouthfeel balanced by racy acidity. An excellent versatile and top quality white from a unique origin within the Basque Country.

Contrary to most of the Txakoli available on the market, this is a great food pairing wine, to be enjoyed with classic pintxos, oily fish or fresh, uncured cheese. This wine will keep getting getting better with age! But can be drunk young too.

Iñaki and Rosa María Exteberría have always run the family’s dairy farm, but in 2001 they planted 3.8 ha of Hondarribi Zuri, Petit Corbu and Gros Manseng (known as Iskirita Zuri Handia in Basque), and started making Txacolí. Iñaki likes to hold onto the bottles and release them months after his counterparts, and this allows his wines have extra complexity.
