Ameztoi “Rubentis” Rosé 2019: Getariako Txakolina, Spain
Grape: Hondarribi Beltza/Hondarribi Zurri
Region/History Notes: Ok get ready. I am going to take you to a whole new world of rosé with this one! Unlike any other, rosé from Getariako Txakolina (pronounced get-ar-e-AH-ko choc-o-LEEN-ah) or called Txakoli for short (pronounced CHOC-o-lee), is the spiciest, sharpest, most vibrant rosé ever made! Typically poured from a “Porron” sometimes straight into your mouth! Let me know if you want to order one to practice a new skill.
Tasting Notes: Jalapeño notes, white flowers, green strawberries, granny smith apples abound in this slightly fritzy wine. Pair with pasta carbonara, Chinese take-out, fish tacos, or a cheeseboard.
