Description

This wine offers a perspective into the wine making styles of the Basque region, the high altitude climate where the wine grows offers some freshness to the wines. The skill of the winemaker ensures that the freshness is maintained and the complexity developed through thoughtful winemaking techniques

The name 42 represents the time that this wine spends in oak vats. 42 Zura by Gorka Izagirre, the first and only still wine to incorporate French oak vats in this winemaking cellar for 100% of the wine (“zura” means wood in Basque)

TASTING NOTES:

Colour: Golden yellow colour with green hues, clean and bright.
Nose: It has clean and intense aromas of ripe fruit and citrus. Aromas of toasted bread and pastry, typical of the subtle and quite limited oak contact
Palate: Powerful and silky palate with a ripe and ample base, with notes of citrus and tropical fruits accompanied by smoky, toasted and buttery subtle notes; all wrapped in fresh acidity that promises a long life and fantastic evolution of the wine.
Food pairing: This wine benefits from the character of the Hondarrabi Zerratia grape and the protection of the fine-grain French oak that gives it elegance and structure. It pairs well with fish, meat and cheese, but its body makes it a versatile choice for many dishes
