Camino Roca Altxerri Getariako Txakolina 2018

  • 1699


Roca Altxerri is named for the Altxerri Cave, located in Basque country, which is home to the oldest stone paintings in Europe, dating back almost 40,000 years. This wine comes from two hectares planted on seaside hills facing the sun to keep the vines dry and are hand harvested. These wines are sustainably grown using organic and biodynamic methods.

Located around the small fishing towns of Getaria and Zarautz, on the coast of the Bay of Biscay in Northern Spain, the Getariako Txakolina DO was established in 1990, but the history of vine growing is a long one dating back to the Middle Ages. The pergola trained vines here are quite old (many 80+ years) with the roots reaching 10 meters below the surface. The area was not affected by Phylloxera due to the high rainfall which allowed water accumulation around roots, protecting them from the outbreak.

Txakoli, the appellation, is pronounced (cha-kuh-lee)

100% Hondurrabi Zuri

Wine Notes

The gentle fizz (traditional style of Txakoli) is just of the charming elemants to Roca Altxerri. Bone dry with angular but balanced acidity with a plethora of fruit notes including grapefruit and melon with fresh grass and spring flower notes on the nose. Extremely versatile to pair food with and low alcohol at 10%.  Pair with grilled fish, shellfish, sushi, ceviche and any salty fried foods.
