Este vino representa el patrimonio único y genuino de los viñedos que se asientan entre los bosques de Euskadi. Ostoki significa en euskera 'lugar de hojas'. Luis Moya nombra así a este vino en homenaje a esas hojas que caen en otoño sobre su viñedo, provenientes de los robles y encinas que comparten espacio con las cepas de Garnacha que dan lugar a este tinto.

The only wine I tasted from 2018 was the 2018 Ostoki, Garnacha from one of the few remaining vineyards that were used to produce the old red txakoli from Pamplona. 2018 was a higher-yielding year, and the grapes ripened slowly and managed to keep very good freshness (the bottled wine has a pH of 3.26). The vineyard is thought to be around 80 years of age, and like all the old vineyards, it's mostly Garnacha but also has some individual vines of other varieties, such as Tempranillo, Mazuela, Garnatxa Roya, Garnatxa Blanca, Monastrell, Viura and Moscatel. It fermented in stainless steel with indigenous yeasts and matured in one used 300-liter oak barrel and 54-liter glass demijohns for 10 months. This wine is sold with no appellation of origin. It's the most extreme and radical of the wines I tasted from Luis Moya, a young wine with a bright color and a wild nose of herbs, berries and flowers. The palate is sharp and has pungent flavors and acidity. It's not a wine for all palates, but it has lots of character. I loved it! Only 600 bottles were filled in January 2020.
