2012 Zudugarai "Amats" Rosé Getariako Txakolina

SKU #1125250

Amats is both the brand name of the txakoli as well as one of Zudugarai's vineyards. It's a beautiful vineyard, a sandy substrate covered in naturally growing green cover between the rows, with the Cantabrian Sea in full view to the north. Produced from Hondarribi Beltza grapes, this rosé shows a lovely balance between fresh red berries, hints of watermelon, a very subtle, pleasant bitterness and fizzy quality. It's delicious with cured cheeses (something slightly smoky like Idiazabal works really well), charcuterie, anchovies or your favorite cured ham (prosciutto, serrano, or anything from Iowa's own La Quercia!)

Candied strawberry, raspberry, mineral with the tiniest hint of sweetness. Medium plus acidity and nice body- Fruity and easy! 10.5% alcohol- if you love the plush roses of France, give this little Txakoli rose a try!

Made from Hundurribi Belza (a dark-skinned grape used in Txakoli production), this is one of my favorite roses in the store this season. I love its distinctive nose, with delicate dark berry fruit and mineral aromas that remind me of Loire Valley Cabernet Franc. It is fruity yet very crisp on the palate, perfect for enjoying with a variety of foods, from fresh seafood to grilled sausages to paella. Organically farmed and made with minimal intervention.
