2008 Xarmant Arabako Txakolina

SKU #1048573

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Light yellow. Impressively complex bouquet of grapefruit, lemon thyme, tarragon and white pepper. Dry, racy and sharply focused, offering lively citrus and green apple flavors and a strong herbal note. Finishes with impressive clarity and mineral thrust, with the herbal element recurring." (Sept/Oct '09) We love Txakoli! This vintage of the Xarmant is super racy, with tons of bright, clear, mineral-inflected lime fruit. And of course, there's the fizzy aspect (the Arabako Txakolina D.O. is moderately fizzy, not quite as much as Txakolina Getariako, but more so than Txakolina Bizkaiko). Serve this chilled, put some jamon, bacalao fritters, calamari, or whatever finger food you want out, and you've definitely got a party. Enjoy this quintessential, refreshing, summertime Basque country white now while the weather is warm and our stock is sufficient.

The Txakolina invasion has begun at K&L wines and we are all converts to the movement. This wine has fragrant aromas of "nutty cheese" (that line always cracked me up from Sideways because I thought it was ridiculous, but..) and rather lactic flavors on the palate. This is all mixed with sharp acidity and strong mineral flavors. This is a great wine that I will be buying lots of.
