Ameztoi Txakoli di Getaria Blanco 2015

Winemaker's Notes:

*David Williams’ Wines of the Week, The Guardian, 9th April 2016* From Bilbao to San Sebastian Basque Txacoli (or Chacoli) made from the native Hondarrabi Zuri, is served in the pinxtos bars poured with great panache from a great height into small tumblers. The green-tinted liquid turns chalky-white, foams and eventually settles, retaining a lively spritz. Here you have a polyculture: apples, pears and tomatoes are planted, the vineyards are not weeded and no chemical sprays are used. The taste of Txacoli, well, to quote Dick Swiveller in the Old Curiosity Shop, it can't be tasted in a sip. It should be a back of the throat job, waiting for that jolting appley sourness to kick in. Gird your loins with some Cantabrian anchovies, stuffed pimentos or smoked fish and let the Txac attack!
