2018 Zudugarai "Amats" Getariako Txakolina

SKU #1398711

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 Zuri grapes, this is classic Txakoli: zippy, crisp, tart green apple flavors are enlivened by a lovely sparkle from the CO2 retained in tank during fermentation. Try this refreshing, vibrant, low in alcohol white wine with a wide range of foods, from obvious choices such as seafood (grilled sardines or cured anchovies would be a few of my favorites) to more substantial fare. Of course, I would not argue with this wine being serve as an aperitive as well! (Joe Manekin, K&L Spanish wine buyer)

A perfect brunch wine or pairing for shellfish from start to finish, this inexpensive little gem of a wine is the definition of crisp, fun, and refreshing. Granny Smith apple, lime, green melon rind, wet stone, and a hint of almond meld cohesively into a delightful and lightly effervescent package. It's long and minerally and leaves the palate begging for another sip. Whether it's called on for service with clams, oysters, crab, shrimp, an omelette, huevos rancheros, or any other seafood or brunch pairing, this will do the trick perfectly. A brilliant choice for parties as well.

What's not to like with this wine? Like its competitor from Portugal, Vinho Verde, this light, spritzy white is unfortunately easy to drink! Luckily, it is lower alcohol! Bright and zesty, with citrus fruits, hints of nectarine and sea salt, it's a wonderful hot day drink to have by itself or with a light lunch. This wine will transport you right to Spain!

I couldn't design a more perfect Summer white wine than a Txakolina, and this one from Amats really delivers. Light, fresh, a little zippy and low alcohol. With a slight spritz from some carbonation, this a great pool-side sipper for those long, warm days. Spain's answer to Vinho Verde, this is a great pairing to veggies, seafood, and charcuterie, all the things we love in a California Summer.

If you aren't familiar with Txakoli wines, now is the time to learn. We have this lovely, light spritzy wine in stock just in time for summer, and believe me it is the perfect summer pick. Zudugarai Amats is a small winery we've been importing directly for several vintages now, and the quality here is phenomenal. Crisp with a slight sea-tang, this wine has a slightly effervescent texture, and is loaded with fresh granny smith apple notes. It's the perfect accompaniment to cured meats, salted almonds and hard nutty cheeses. Enjoy!
