Grape - Hondarrabi Zuri

Where - Basque County, Spain

What - It's just one of the best feelings when a wine comes along that just ticks every box. The Tantaka absolutely does this, giving total uniqueness, drinkability and artisan vibes all over. It gives a sort of nod towards Loire Valley Chenin Blanc; crisp, integrated acidity and a rich, full body. Juand Jo is the exceptional winemaker behind the juice and the accuracy of his craft really shines through. What we have here is a wine that comes from pure joy and a real respect for nature. 


It was preserved on its lees for exactly five months which gives the texture more volume whilst digging the high acidity deep into the wine for a balanced outcome. 


It's crystal clear and very aromatic. You really notice the minerality coming through on the nose, especially granite and racy, fresh herbs. The mouthfeel has a touch of oil reminiscent of the best Rieslings, with notes of honey blossom, honey, Granny Smith apples and underripe pear. 


Racy, delicious, rare. Vegan. Low intervention. Organic practicing. ABV 13%.
