2011 Ameztoi "Rubentis" Rosé Getariako Txakolina

SKU #1089893

Ameztoi produces some of the tastiest, most representative and classic txakoli: the delicious, bright, slightly petillant (fizzy), low alcohol wines which are consumed like water in Spanish Euskadi (Basque Country). Vineyards are a stone's throw from the ocean, full of verdant, green cover throughout the year. This rosé is super limited, with something of a cult following in the Bay Area, New York City and beyond. Get some before it disappears. Yes, it's every bit as delicious as you have heard. Some white wine grapes (Hondarribi Zuri) are fermented and then blended in with the red grapes (Hondarribi Beltza), which explains the precise flavors and beautiful pale pink color.

Searing acidity with ground breaking minerality and i just love it. I had this wacky Rose with an assortment of Indian curries,flat breads and Spicy Singaras. It was a absolute delight.

Dry and slightly fizzy Rose that is easy to drink and food friendly. If price is not a consideration then pick up a case for that afternoon party or appetizer/first course beverage. I really like this wine but find the $20 price tag a bit of an impediment to drinking regularly.

Country:

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.
