Product Description:

"Txakolina is the national drink of Spanish Basque country, where a vast amount is consumed every summer. This particular version is from the Getaria region, where the Txakolina tends to be slightly fizzy and low in alcohol, encouraging plenty of thirst-quenching chugging. The Ameztoi is fresh and slightly briny, with flavors of lemon and lime. It calls out for sardines, anchovies and all manner of seafood." - 'Summer's Winners: 20 Wines for $20', Eric Asimov, New York Times (5/19/14)

***Year in and year out this Txakolina thrills with it's amazingly refreshing palate and green apple fruit. One of our most popular warm weather quaffers for sure. A slightly effervescent body delivers the minerality in the gorgeous wine beautifully. Obtained from two of the most obscure grapes in the world, Hondarrabi Zuri and Hondarribi Beltza. Don't miss out on the 2013!***

"Pale with greenish white. Abundance of fruit flavors (green apple, fresh grapes) and floral with hints of mint. Dry on the attack, finishes smooth. Huge, aromatic finish with some minerality."- Producer
