Gaintza is a family run winery established in 1923 by Jose Antonio located in the Basque Country in the north of Spain.
The grapes were hand harvested, pressed gently and then fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats. The wine was kept in contact with its lees until bottling. This added depth to this fresh and racy wine. Malolactic fermentation was prevented to preserve the acidity and lean style of this wine.
Gaintza’s Txakoli (pronounced Chakoli) is spritzy, displaying aromas of green apples and lemons with a clean finish and is light bodied at 11% alcohol by volume.
Pairings: Seafood, white meats, grilled vegetables, Japanese cuisine.
