The Vine at Bridges USD 24.00 750ml

Ameztoi Getariako Txakolina 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

90% Hondarribi Zuri and 10% Hondarribi Beltza. Fermented in stainless steel. This light and crisp wine is bottled with residual carbon to give it its signature natural spritz. Bright briny sea salt combined with limey fruits. Fresh and eminently quaffable. Not yet reviewed; 2010 vintage rated 91 points by International Wine Cellar: Pale straw. Intense, mineral-accented aromas of grapefruit, lime pith, ginger and quinine, along with a fresh floral quality. Taut and nervy, with bright citrus zest flavors complemented by intense mineral and floral notes and building spiciness. The citrus and mineral notes repeat on the racy, persistent finish.

Vintage: 2010 08/13/2011

Drinking this Basque wine is a lot easier than saying the names of the grapes in it: Hondarribi Zurri and Hondarribi Beltza. Dry and light-bodied with mineral-driven fruit and aromas of grapefruit and lemon, it is a perfect wine for seafood.

The Ameztoi family has been making txakolina for seven generations, utilizing the indigenous grapes to craft a light, crisp wine bottled with residual CO2 to give it its signature natural spritz.
