Gorka Izagirre’s Arima
Late harvest elaborated with Hondarrabi Zerratia is picked during November if Biscay’s meteorology allows us to.
After fermenting in French oak barrels of 500l, it grows by its lees during 6 months before maturing in bottle. The sweet must becomes in ARIMA, Biscay’s pure essence.
A sweet melody with fresh hints that joints perfectly with cheeses, deserts and foie. Silky, mature and immersive.
