Basa Lore translates in Basque to “Wild Flower from the Forest”. Located near San Sebastian in Zarautz, where the ocean meets the forest. Basa Lore together with 5 other wineries founded the D.O. Getariako Txakolina.
This style has been inherent to the land for almost 600 years, making this wine the perfect culmination of time and toil.
This family winery in operation since 1930, is currently run by the fourth generation of the family and continues their Basque Country winemaking traditions. Basa Lore means ‘Flor del Bosque’ in Spanish that shows the bubbling and green tones of the Txakoli when it goes into the glass.
And there in lies the problem. She who doesn’t like fizzy had her nose up before she even had a sip. After the first coif, she tempered her comments to admitting that she sorta/kinda liked the way it went with the peanut butter/honey glazed chicken thighs.
Then she admitted that the light, dry fruity flavours ended with a nice bright finish.
The wine is Vegan produced, went through natural Fermentation and had No Sulfites Added.
