Txakoli is a special type of white wine from the Basque Country in northern Spain. It is always refreshing, sometimes slightly fizzy. You drink it as an aperitif or with fish and seafood and always young. We recently tasted Antxiola 2020 from a producer called Txakoli Zudugarai.
I very much liked the high and fresh acidity, notes of herbs, citrus and green apples. The alcohol content is only 11%, which is also typical of a txakoli wine. The grape is the local hondarrabi zuri. The vineyards are located just east of the pleasant city of Bilbao, famous for the magnificent Guggenheim Museum. (~15 euro)
