2016 Adur Getariako Txakolina

SKU #1311289

Adur is a Getariako Txakolina with a slightly different approach and resulting palate profile. While nearly all of the D.O.'s vineyards face north within a few kilometers of the Cantabrian Sea, Adur has two vineyards - one of them near the sea and another a bit further inland. This latter vineyard allows for relatively riper grapes (which in this cool, misty portion of Spain means 11.5-12% potential ABV!), and the blend of fruit from these two vineyards yields a bright, expressive, slightly broader style of Txakoli - perhaps somewhere between a Txakoli and Albariño? A delicious white for an aperitif, oysters, smoked salmon or dungeness crab!

This is not your typical Txakoli wine here. Grown in a vineyard a few miles more inland, the climate is warmer and allows for the grapes to achieve higher ripeness. This wine thusly rounder than usual, and also does not have as much prototypical fizz. Aromas include saltiness and sea spray accompanied by stone fruit and citrus zest. Slight bit of green and white peppercorn spice on the palate and a chalky minerality. As our Spanish buyer Joe Manekin said it's as if “Txakolina meets Albariño.”

Anyone who has visited San Sebastian and experienced its vibrant dining, drinking and pintxos scene has surely enjoyed the local Getariako Txakolina ("txakoli" for short) Adur sets itself apart from most of the pack, in that it is relatively opulent 11.5% ABV (compared to the more typical 10.5%!) and shows juicier stone fruit flavors to complement the typical fresh acidity and fizziness. Bright, invigorating and delicious white wine!

- 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.
