Somewhat impure taste. I don't think I'd like this with food.

Nothing spectacular on the nose, a little brute funk that reminds one of a strip-mall fast food kitchen back door, but a light warm citrus taste with a mild spice briefly pleases the senses to make it almost worthwhile.

A funky nose (similar to chenin blanc), but on the mouth this wine is brightly acidic, a slight spritz and very metallic with a perfumed finish. Very unusual and not to my taste

Perfect with tapas (heavy on the seafood and vegetables), this is almost like a lightly carbonated soft drink more than a wine, but that suited the food perfectly. Champagne for when champagne is too much.

"Xarmant" means charming in Basque, and that's a very apt way of describing this wine (but really, it had us at "Txakolina"). From the tiny D.O. of Txakoli de Alava, this is an extremely light and refreshing white wine, showing the perfect amount of mouthwatering acidity and crisp, green apple fruit.
