Passion for Spanish wine



Izar-Leku 2018 Espumoso Brut Nature

Artadi, Vinos sin indicación geográfica

This sparkling wine, a partnership between Artadi and Basque cider producer Zapiain, is establishing itself as one of the most attractive sparkling wines in Spain. With a longer ageing period than the first vintages (36 months in 2018), it has gained in complexity (dried herbs, citrus and salty notes) and has a unique mouthfeel, marked by its vibrant acidity and distinctive saltiness on the finish, almost like having the sea breeze in your glass. The bottle is gone in the blink of an eye. 17.5 points
