Bengoetxe | Bengoetxe

Contrary to most of the Txacoli available on the market, this a quite serious wine, with lovely weight and mouthfeel balanced by racy acidity. Iñaki likes to hold onto the bottles and release them months after his counterparts, and this allows his wines have extra complexity. He also doesn’t inject any CO2, so the little carbonation present here is completely natural. This is a great food wine, to be enjoyed with classic pintxos, oily fish or fresh, uncured cheese. As the vines get older, Iñaki’s wines will only get better, and the potential for long-lived Txakolí is certainly there. We’re looking forward to it.
