Top 10 wines in the US press22nd May, 2014 by Lauren Eads
Ameztoi Getariako Txakolina 2013, Spain
Eric Asomov, writing in the New York Times, picked out 20 summer wines for under $20 this week, including this fizzy white from Spain’s Basque country.
He said: “Txakolina is the national drink of Spanish Basque country, where a vast amount is consumed every summer. This particular version is from the Getaria region, where the Txakolina tends to be slightly fizzy and low in alcohol, encouraging plenty of thirst-quenching chugging. The Ameztoi is fresh and slightly briny, with flavors of lemon and lime. It calls out for sardines, anchovies and all manner of seafood.”
