Wine information
Oxer Bastegieta is a rockstar and we are definitely amongst his ‘groupies’. Oxer always wanted to make wines in Rioja Alavesa, the Basque area of Rioja, and in 2005 he took the plunge and moved to the area. In 2009 he made his first wine with grapes from old vineyards which had been purchased from growers in the area. Convinced of the singularity of these old vines in the region, Oxer began buying some of these old vineyards to create unique wines with loads of depth and soul. Marko is the name of Oxer´s family house which is surrounded by the vineyard used for this wine. This 8-month lees-aged Txakoli has aromas of apples and pear. Half of the wine is barrel fermented which gives this a wonderful creamy texture, with smoky and yeasty notes and some vanilla and spice. Not your normal Txakoli and one for the adrenaline junkie!

Robin says "Oxer makes truly distinctive wines in the heart of the Basque Country. In this case, we are on the Basque coast around Bilbao where the Txakoli wines are a bit more powerful and structured. Oxer leans more towards a "natural winemaking" style and this can be felt in this unique cuvée. Only the best grapes are used and the wine is bottled unfiltered."
