Product Description:

Many of the best Txakolis never leave the Basque country, such is demand locally for a refreshing white to accompany all those fabulous, fishy pintxos. But in Flysch, we reckon we’ve found a real beauty. We wanted a Txakoli made from 100 percent Hondarribi Zuri in the DO of Getaria – the best quality grape and most celebrated DO for Txakoli production. Flysch, I'm thrilled to report, ticks both boxes, and many more. Citrus dominates the nose, but there’s an appealing hint of elderflower too. The palate is mineral and precise, with bracing acidity and a crushed oyster-shell character that lifts Flysch to another plain of class and complexity. At 11 percent, Flysh is a wonderful wine for summer lunchtimes regardless of the dish, but it works particularly well with fried fish. As I found when I visited the winery, it also makes an astonishingly good accompaniment to dark chocolate.
