2012 Ameztoi Getariako Txakolina

SKU #1123511

Ameztoi produces some of the tastiest, most representative and classic Txakoli: the delicious, bright, slightly petillant (fizzy), low alcohol wines that are consumed like water in Spanish Euskadi (Basque Country). Vineyards here are on hilly, sandy terrain a stone's throw from the sea, just outside the picturesque town of Getaria (Getariako is Basque for "from Getaria"). The primary grape variety is called Hondarribi Zuri, though a tiny bit of Hondarribi Beltza (a red variety vinified as a white, without skin contact) is blended in as well. Their 2011 Txakoli is full of juicy citrus and stone fruit, with a wonderful balance of juicy fruit, acidity and fizziness. For an authentic pairing, try grilling your favorite white fleshed fish with olive oil and sea salt, a perfect spring/summer combo!

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.
