Ameztoi Rose 'Rubentis' Txakolina 2017
Ameztoi is one of Txakoli’s top producers, comprised of 20 hectares of Atlantic-influenced vines. Now headed by seventh generation Ignacio, wines focus on indigenous varieties, fermented in stainless steel and bottled with natural residual carbonic acid (AKA, spritz!) The ‘Rubentis’ rosé is a 50/50 blend of Hondarribi Beltza & Zuri, oozing with notes of salty strawberries and minerals- one of the most thirst-quenching rosés we’ve ever tasted!
One of the 'big three' European wine giants along with France and Italy, but perhaps the one with the most untapped potential, with many ascendant regions and producers just now finding an audience.
