Ametza (Portuguese Oak in Basque language) is the brand name of the first txakoli produced at our winery, named in honour of a hundred-year-old oak located close to our house, silent witness to the evolution of our family for generations.
The Ametza Txakoli is the result of a mix of vineyards and grape varieties —Hondarrabi Zuri and Izpiriotza Txikia— painstakingly vinified to be able to offer the traditional essence of the Txakolis of our land.
Pale, straw-yellow with green hues; clean and bright.
Medium-high intensity, varietal aromas, particularly of citrus fruit (limes, grapefruit) and apples and other white pulp fruit.
Balanced mouth, well-integrated acidity and a long, persistent finish with elegant varietal notes.
