No secret I love this Spanish Basque Country gem and the juice keeps getting better vintage after vintage, this one is no exception.
The color is pale yellow and visibly fizzy.
The nose is fresh, with lime, green strawberry and wet stone.
On the pallet there is a slight effervescence; lemon zest, high acidity, and a saline component. The finish is clean and compared to previous vintages this is more balanced with pronounced honeysuckle.
It is dry, acidic, light alcohol, immediately enjoyable, and traditionally paired with seafood; however this time I paired it with spicy Asian lo mein noodles. The freshness really counterbalanced the heat in the dish and made for a savory experience. — 11 days ago

Fine rosé. Dry, fresh w a little tannin structure. Have to search deep for Txako character, though. — a month ago

Limpid, green-hued straw. Taut and sharply focused on the nose, displaying vibrant citrus zest, quince and floral scents and a chalky mineral overtone. Dry and nervy on the palate, offering juicy lemon, green apple and honeysuckle flavors and a spicy touch of ginger. Displays firm tension and spicy cut on the finish, which hangs on with strong, mineral-driven tenacity. (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, June 2021)

This is a new higher end wine by Txomin Etxaniz called TX which is aged for 6 months in acacia barrels instead of oak to impart less flavor. This gives it more roundness while still retaining acidity. It’s floral, minerally, and acidic. Still effervescent, but a more serious Txakoli for sure — 3 years ago
