The Txakoli, that word, which is pronounced by many people as “tschackaulii” is produced in the Northern part of Spain, in the region of the Basque Country, next to France.
This peculiar sparkling white wine, is described like: Light yellow, frothing rims. Youthful, a little shy on the nose, fresh of citrus and a sense of wet rocks. On the palate, relatively light bodied with lively acidity and gentle fizziness. Very fresh fruitiness from citrus and lime and with a distinct minerality. The aftertaste stays for an eternity with palate filling fresh and sweet ripe citrus fruitiness, wet stones and a delightful touch of saltiness.
Ideal wine to pair with seafood or any kind of fish.
