Txomin Etxaniz Txakoli Getariako Txakolina

If you like Vinho Verde or Albariño, then you must try Txomin Etxaniz Txakoli. Attractive brilliant straw hues, with a mid-to-low fizz spritz on the palate. The nose is alluring and delicate with apple, cucumber and some light pear perfume. The palate shows more fullness and structure; gentle fruit sweetness gives a bright fruit spread on entry, and it gains nice gentle tartness, facilitating a poised and impeccably balanced finish. Clean, well-composed spring fruits, beautifully spiced; great drinking.

Description

Txakolina is a wine that comes from the Basque region in Spain and is made from Hondarrabi Zuri. The wines are extremely fresh and vibrant. Perfect for oily fish, pintxos (the Basque version of Tapas) or drunk ice cold on a hot day. If you ever get the chance to visit San Sebastian you will experience the intriguing way that Txakoli is served. It gets poured from a height which aerates and removes carbon dioxide from the wine. Most of the wine ends up splashing on the bar tops, but don't worry, you always get the same size serving and won't get short-changed!
