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)

(pronounced chock-oh-LEE-nah). Light straw with aromas of citrus and floral notes. On the palate sour green apples and lemon citrus, nutty spice with lively acidity. Medium finish with mineral tones, not as good as some others I tasted, but this is ok. Txakolina is worth trying, good ones are great!

A fun Basque Country slightly effervescent white blend. San Sebastián’s wine pairing for the pinxtos. Good fun with a cheese and charcuterie board. Green Apple and medium acidity.

Always like txokoli. Especially good with a Cajun seafood boil.

Very nice natural fizz, cider yellow, sweet floral and fruity aroma, green apple, grape frawns, fullish but easy and balanced, not too sweet! Interesting - doesn’t really need a chill. Drinks well at cellar temp
