2012 Doniene Bizkaiko Txakolina

Wine of the Week: 2012 Doniene Bizkaiko Txakolina

Irene Virbila, writing in the LA Times, chose this “crisp and aromatic” white from the Bizkaiko Txakolina region in Spain’s Basque country, which she said would pair well with grilled fish or a chilled seafood platter.

She said: “Crisp and nervy, this Txakolina from the Spanish Basque country has more depth than most and a welcome minerality. Scented with key lime and jasmine, it ends on a slight bitter note, just enough to make you want to take another sip. A serious wine.

“Of course, it’s a brilliant match with crudo or sushi, a chilled seafood platter or grilled fish. Have it with salt-cured anchovies drizzled with olive oil, which is what winemakers typically serve with their Txakolina in the tasting room.

Price: $18 to $22
