2008 Berroia Bizkaiko Txakolina (Previously $17)

SKU #1046607

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Berroia is a blend of 90% Hondarribi Zuri, 6% Folle Blanche, and 4% Riesling raised in stainless steel. Medium straw-colored with a slight amber tint, it exhibits an enticing nose of spring flowers, mineral, apple, and anise. Round on the palate with good acidity, the wine has excellent grip, balance, and length. It is an excellent value in Txakoli for drinking over the next 1-2 years." (02/09)

Next time you are told to "bring some wine" to a party, I suggest you bring this, if you can get your hands on it. Crisp, zippy, perfect-for-summer white that is mineral-driven and fresh. So drinkable, yet so unique and obscure at the same time. A wine-geek wine that us regular folks can enjoy too.

When you want a wine to scrub the work-day away, look no further. Like a martini for lightweights, it is very bracing, with minerals and green tart fruit. I can't pronounce the producer, I can't pronounce the grape (Hondarribi Zuri)but I can reach out, and pour another glass!

An almost pale green, watery color, this wine from Basque Spain is as unique as it is tasty. Almost completely dominated with a strong chalky minerality, the palate is crisp, clean, and refreshing. This is the perfect wine for seafood or patio sipping if you run from the richer, fruitier whites. Snappy and satisfying.

This one didn't work for me. I'd be willing to try it again, however. It seemed a little too light and I didn't feel the balance.

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.
