The cuvée Haitza – “oak” in Basque – is produced using Tannat and Cabernet Sauvignon. The nose is powerful and expressive, with ripe black fruits aromas (blackberry, black cherry), and animal and spicy (clove) notes. The attack is warm, with an imposing tannic structure, the substance is dense and the length impeccable. To produce this cuvée, the grapes are picked by hand. The grapes, grown organically and biodynamically on complex and varied soils (sandstone, schist, cannel coal and ophite), are destemmed before undergoing natural fermentation. The grapes are steeped for three weeks and the wine matured on its lees in casks for around 18 months.

Irouléguy Cuvée Haitza Arretxea (Domaine) serve at a temperature of 15°C.
