2008 Gurrutxaga Bizkaiko Txakolina Rosé

SKU #1049356

A truly unusual (in a good way) drinking experience, this txakoli rosé is actually a totally different animal from the Ameztoi 'Rubentis' txakoli rosé. A pretty, delicate pink color, the tart red currant, berry, slightly savory flavors and finesse of this rosé recall a subtle, food friendly Chinon rosé. It is probably the driest rosé I have yet to drink this year, so keep that in mind. With a touch of txakoli's trademark fizz thrown in, this is a fun bottle for the wine geeks. Pair with any simply grilled fish, particularly salmon.

This wine may seem a tad on the "geeky" side for some but it is pretty fascinating stuff. Made from Hondarribi Beltza (the red grape from Txakoli) it has a range of flavors that float between cabernet franc and gamay. The wine definitely has lots of cherry fruit with a lovely sparkle behind it but it is the slightly herbal notes and touch of smoke that make it truly intriguing. One of the most amusing rose's I have tasted this season.

Spain

- With more land under vine than any other country in the world, Spain is the great sleeping wine giant. In recent years, a great deal of money and passion has been poured in the burgeoning Spanish wine industry, helping to improve quality among its vast array of wines from sparkling Cava to Sherry to Rioja Gran Reserva. The most important red-wine-producing regions are Rioja, Ribera del Duero and Navarra in the north and Priorat and Penedes in the northeast.
