2018 Bizkaiko Txakolina (Gorrondona, Doniene)
Doniene Gorrondona, Txakoli, Bizkaiko Txakolina, Spain, 201885% Hondarribi Zuri, 12% Mune Mahatsa (Folle Blanche) and 3% Hondarribi Beltza TART KIWI & GREEN APPLE, DRY & RAZORY, FLINTY MINERAL Taking it's name from the Bay of Biscay, the Bizkaiko zone of Txakolina production brings us, perhaps, the most diversity stylistically. This example has only the faintest touch of the spritz that Txakoli is famous for, but retains the insanely pronounced minerality and refreshingly tangy fruit. Flavorful and chiseled in structure, this delicate white subtly layers aromas of melon and kiwi with the trademark tart apple and lime flavors of this Basque-tastic wines. Serving Suggestion: Mackerel sashimi. Salsa verde. Shrimp ceviche w/ garlic and salty chorizo.
