Marko Late Harvest

D.O. Bizkaiko Txakolina


What’s in a Label

The label is a reference to a famous Edgar Allan Poe poem: “And his eyes have all the seeming of a demon’s that is dreaming”. Instead of raven it are crows that circle around the Izkiota Txikia vineyard. The man waiting refers to late harvest and the sand clocks symbolizes the proximity to the ocean (at only 8 kilometres).


100% Izkiriota Txikia (Petit Manseng)


The vineyards are located in the village of Kortezubi, a little old town in Bizkaia, famous for its prehistoric caves which form a Unesco World Heritage Site. The vineyard soil is composed of calcareous clay.


The grapes were harvested the 24th of November. After whole bunch pressing a spontaneous fermentation takes place in
French oak barriques. When the perfect balance between alcohol and residual sugar is reached, the fermentation is stopped. The wine then ages for 8 months on its lees.
