The fore-palate it's light and very friendly, with a smooth and velvety mid-palate. The perfectly balanced mouth feel is full of red fruit and herbaceous flavours with a fresh balsamic finish.

The Azurmendi family – Eneko and his uncle Gorka – created a bold project for Basque gastronomy and wine growing, quickly becoming role models in both areas. From the outset, the aim of this winegrower was to boost the cultivation of indigenous grape varieties to produce unique wines that mirrored the great potential of this magnificent viticultural area. Gorka Izagirre’s wines come from their own 42-hectare estate of vineyards that lie on steep slopes that sometimes reach more than 30% of inclination, spread across 14 different vineyards. Gorka Izagirre, started the winemaking business 16 years ago in the Basque country, 15 minutes away from Bilbao and in a small town called Larrabetzu where he grew up. Today the vineyard and winery is managed by Son, Bertol, Who is passionate about creating complex, gastronomic wines that represent the soul of the area.
