Txakoli TXOMIN ETXANIZ TX
Txakoli made with grapes of the native Hondarrabi Zuri variety, from old Getaria vineyards. It has been vinified in acacia barrels to respect the fruitiness and made on its own lees.
Txomin Etxaniz TX txakoli is a white wine that can be tasted at a temperature between 8 ° and 12 ° C. When it comes to accompanying it, there is nothing better than white fish baked or in sauce, spicy dishes (Indian, Mexican or Thai cuisine), white meats both in stews and roasts, game of feathers or mushrooms in risotto and scrambled eggs.
This barrel-fermented txakoli can be enjoyed for the next 4 or 5 years, always keeping it in a dark place, without light and with the bottle in a horizontal position. The TX is made with selected grapes from a plot of 60 hectares of old vineyard located on the shores of the Cantabrian Sea, its proximity to the sea and the sea breeze gives the peculiarity of giving a slight salty nuance to this txakoli fermented on its own lees. Although it may seem otherwise, wine fermented in the barrel has fewer notes of wood than a wine fermented out of the barrel and then aged in the barrel.
