Ameztoi, Txakoli Rosé "Rubentis", Getariako Txakolina, Pays Basque, Spain 2022
50% Hondaribbi Zuri, 50% Hondaribbi Beltza
SPRITZY WHITE CHERRY & FLESHY LIME, MONOLITHIC MINERALITY
If it were possible to nominate a single wine for the official title of "most refreshing," this Txakoli Rosé might very well take the prize. Tangy-tart citrusy brightness, fresh red fruit, and elegant mineral conspire to make it both deceptively thirst-quenching and consummately captivating. This an eloquently effervescent elixir to down by the liter, and its relatively low alcohol content of 10.5% makes it a phenomenal patio buddy from mid-day to midnight.
Serving Suggestion: Non-boring gazpacho: think fresh cheese and raspberries. Rasbpacho? Also try of prawns å la plancha, eaten with your hands.
