Stimatum, meaning “esteemed” is Ameztoi’s limited release red txakoli. It is produced exclusively from the local, indigenous hondarrabi beltza variety. Grown on traditional trellises high on the slopes rising above Getaria, an ancient Basque fishing village on Spain’s rugged northern coast.
In the 2000s, when almost all of the other local wineries gave up on the indigenous red hondarrabi beltza vines, the Ameztoi family retained their old vines. Low alcohol + high acid. Fermented with indigenous yeast in stainless steel. Unfiltered.
