Ameztoi Rose 'Rubentis' Txakolina 2018
Ameztoi is one of Txakoli’s top producers. The estate is comprised of 20 hectares, focused on cultivating indigenous varieties. Fruit for ‘Rubentis’ is fermented in stainless steel and bottled with natural residual carbonic acid (AKA, spritz!) The wine shows notes of salty citrus, tart grapefruit, and strawberries, loaded with lip-puckering acidity. This is one of the most thirst-quenching wines 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.
