Getariako is a region in the Basque region of Spain known for creating light, fizzy, low alcohol wines called Txakolina. From this description you might expect simple, straight-forward wine with obvious, basic fruit flavors. On the contrary, Txakolina is one of the more interesting, idiosyncratic wines in the world. This particular wine from Ameztoi, a leading producer in the region, demonstrates the unique character of Txakolina. Fizzy and refreshing with a briny, almost salty profile, abundant minerality and subtle citrus fruits. This is a classic companion to shellfish, particularly shrimp and oysters but it also serves as the ideal aperitif.
