for this region?

Txakoli, pronounced “Cha-ko-lee” is a wine region in the northwest corner of Spanish Basque country, along the Atlantic coast. This is a lightly effervescent, fresh, very dry wine that is most commonly white, although there are rosado and red versions, the latter without bubbles. For a long time, the wine was made as a regional specialty for local consumption, but in the past decade or so has seen a big rise in global popularity. 

It is divided into three regions, which in Basque are known as Arabako, Bizkaia and Getariako (in Spanish: Alava, Viscaya and Getaria). The Basque spelling of these regions varies. The wine itself is referred to as Txakolina and the regions are often on the label. So the label would read, for example, Arabako Txakolina. The red version is only produced in Bizkaia. 
Txakoli is heavily influenced by the Atlantic, making it mild and fairly damp. Trellising is mandatory to avoid mildew buildup on the grapes. The main grapes varietals are Hondurrabi Read more »

    And now for something a bit different - white Spanish wine made from the Hondarrabi Zuri grape. This is very crisp, with notes of lemon, green apple and key lime. It is fairly acidic but in a good way (think 1er cru Montrachet) with a medium finish but not a lot of complexity or layers but very enjoyable. Read More

  • Itsas Mendi Bizkaiko Txakolina 2012


    Floral with a hint of pine on the nose laid over a faintly peachy sweetness.With the barest suggestion of spritz, which is normal here, this washes over the palate a touch loose and broad, delivering lightly mineral water streaked flavors of melon and apple that quickly yield to an assertive mineral note, tastes like mineral water high in potass...

  • Txakoli Gurrutxaga Rose 2008


    A rosé with a bit of bite - tart fruit and a bit of effervescence. This effervescence is lovely and I kind of wish all rosé wines had them.Totally puzzling on the nose. Lightly candied cherry blossoms... if there is such a thing. Hints of smoke. Spice. And something really odd that reminds me of Beaujolais. Is it banana? Bubble gum. My nose is p... Read More
