Hondarrabi Zuri

Hondarrabi Zuri

Hondarrabi Zuri is a white grape variety grown only in Spain, and more specifically, the Basque region. The Atlantic Ocean has a tempering effect on the area which causes the citrus notes in the  Hondarrabi Zuri grape to be lively and slightly herbal. Wines produced with Hondarrabi Zuri are meant to be consumed young and fresh, and are very easy to drink. In order to maintain the fresh quality, Hondarrabi Zuri wines have been known to be bottled with a touch of carbon dioxide.  Hondarrabi Zuri is the most planted variety in the Basque region and is responsible for the base juice in the area’s Txakoli wines. The Txakoli de Getaria is the principal sub-region of Basque’s white wine production. Hondarrabi Zuri is also found in blends with the lesser varieties of the Basque region, including folle blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc, Sauvignon Blanc, and Riesling. Hondarrabi Zuri also has a corresponding red grape variety known as Hondarrabi Beltza. Hondarrabi Zuri grape bunches are tiny and dense with golden colored berries that are petite and round. The wine Hondarrabi produces is pale yellow in color with notes of ripe fruit, citrus, flowers, and herbs on the nose.
