From the heart of a holm oak grove, a marriage of Pinot Noir and Hondarrabi Beltza
Within the framework of an R&D project in collaboration with the Council of Bizkaia and the D.O. Bizkaiko Txakolina called Agricultural and oenological behaviour of the varieties Pinot Noir and Hondarrabi Beltza. Vineyards: Vines more than 20 years old located in Gorliz (1 ha) and Muskiz (0.75 ha), within the area known as the Cantabrian holm oak groves (clay-loam soil with a limestone origin) of the varieties Pinot Noir and Hondarrabi Beltza. Climate: The proximity to the Bay of Biscay provides a microclimate with an average rainfall on the plots of around 931 mm/year.
63% Coupage between Pinot Noir, 32% Hondarrabi Beltza and 5% of Berdexa Zarie. Productions around 4500 kg per ha. in the Pinot Noir and 5,900 kgrs in the Hodarrabi Beltza.
The perfect balance between vegetation and production denoted in the middle of September of this year, the excellence of the vineyard, presaging little work in the winery. Nature this year has greatly facilitated our work. Atlantic profile of a vintage like 2016 with greater warmth and that is perceived in the cherry red color that reflects. We could say that it has been this vintage, when the Pinot Noir has manifested all its fullness in maturation.
