2014 Uhin Berdea "K5" Getariako Txakolina

SKU #1252953 Vinous

 Light, bright yellow. Vibrant, mineral-accented citrus and orchard fruit aromas are complemented by suggestions of jasmine and green tea. Silky and focused on the palate, offering bitter citrus zest and green apple flavors that stretch out on the back half. Shows a refreshingly bitter quality on the tangy, lingering finish. (JR)  (1/2016)

Wine Enthusiast

 Apple and peach aromas are clean and pure. This feels round yet compact, with orange, nectarine and pithy flavors. Green-apple tartness and malic acidity push a pure finish that doesn't balk.  (2/2016)

K&L Notes

100% Hondarribi Zuri grapes, grown on vineyards overlooking the villages of Zarautz and Orio. This wine shows a slightly darker golden color than most Txakolis - likely a function of its five months of lees ageing in tank, as well as its extra time in bottle. Flavors are also a bit richer, but still wonderfully fresh with more gentle yellow fruits than the usual punchy citrus and tangy profile. There is also a lower level of fizz, but still with excellent texture and minerality. This is a Txakoli well worth trying. (Joe Manekin, K&L Spanish Wine Buyer)

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.
