MARKO LORETXOA is a result of using minimum sulphites in combination
with indigenous yeast. This creates an environment for the flor to
flourish. It’s an expression of a flor-aged wine without losing the typical
Txakoli-character.
Vineyards
The vineyards are located in the village of Kortezubi, a little old town in Bizkaia, famous for its prehistoric caves which form a Unesco World Heritage Site.

 

The vineyards are located on a clay loam topsoil over limestone subsoil. Slate can be found in some parts.

 

Winemaking

After fermentation in stainless steel tanks, the wine is transferred to ex-Fino Sherry casks, filled to 80% of the capacity, where the wine ages for2 months under a veil of yeast (flor).

 

Character
On the nose Marko Loretxoa shows aroma ́s of citrus fruit, almonds and herbs. It also displays a marked yeasty character.

 

The palate is characterized by a lively acidity and the finish of the wine is very well structured and has a salty touch.

 

What ́s in a name
Loretxoa means little flower and is a reference to a song of Benito
Lertxundi, an acclaimed Basque singer-songwriter. The quote on the label is from Swiss poet Hermann Hesse:
“The sun speaks to us through light. Flowers give voice to fragrance and colour. The air communes through clouds, snow and rain“.
