Hondarrabi Beltza


Rubentis Getariako Txakolina Hondarrabi Beltza Hondarrabi Zuri Rosé Blend 2017

It's sunny and just over 30°F today, so fire in the chimnea time! First flames of 2019.

Nose is more steely then prior bottles with Cherry-Lime-Strawberry today.
Palate is more mineral biased today as well, perhaps the ambient temperature is restrained or changing it slightly, Strawberry-Lime is still dominant.

A good bottle, still a few left in the cellar, looking forward to the 2018 version. I still hold that 2017 was good, but not as good as 2016. We have one bottle of 2016 left and I'll do a three vintage comparison sometime in May when the new vintages generally land on the East Coast.

I still advise everyone, this is probably the best QPR in rosé, period.

In sale at Art of the table. Beautiful yellow color, dry and light. Different than a lot of what I normally drink and I liked it a lot! Want to explore this type of wine some more! — a month ago

27 Txakoli Hondarrabi Zuri 2016

Sparkling golden lemon color. Apricot, lemon, honey suckle, and golden apple aromas and flavors. 12.5% alcohol and ripe, juicy acidity. Medium minus mouthfeel but not without a decent finish of butter and cream. I am drinking it with a bowl of fresh strawberries but would go nicely with grilled veggies and fish, too. — 2 months ago
