Lots of Xs and Zs.
Gurrutxaga, Bizkaiko, Txakolina, Spain, 2008.
In the vein of Vinho Verde comes another light bright lady, Txakolina. A grape variety that expresses fresh, crisp citrus notes and tart green apple. Like Vinho Verde its a mere 10.5% alcohol and has a spritzy spunk which makes it the perfect Monday morning breakfast wine. Start your week off with this blend of 60% Hondarribi Zuri, 20% Mune Mahasta and 20% Txori Mahasta.
Can you say that 10 times fast?
The perfect pairing with raws oysters to speed up your waning summer libido.
Around $20 at Larchmont Wine and Spirits.
