Details of wine

Tartalo comes from the ancient Basque mythology. An old world Oxer likes to escape to and which he aims to express in his wines and in images. Tartalo is the name of an enormously strong one-eyed Basque giant. The quote on the back label is from the Norwegian painter Edvard Munch: "From my rotting body flowers shall grow and I am in them and that is eternity."

“Oxer is a very exciting new project using old vine parcels from the Rioja Alavesa. This stunning white comes from a 96-year-old, one-hectare parcel in Elvillar and is a blend of Viura with 3% Malvasia, aged is used French oak. It’s a modern/traditional cross over style, with citrus peel, aniseed and nutmeg notes and good grip and depth.” (Tim Atkin)
