Hika Txakolí 2017

Getariako Txakolina

For a true taste of modern Spanish winemaking of the highest order, taste this fine white. From a tiny Basque appellation in northern Spain, close to the Atlantic, and made from a rare grape, this great white is mineral bright and intensely citrusy.

Getariako Txakolina is a small region in Spain's Basque country, very close to the Atlantic and the French border. It's cool there, often wet, and ocean breezes further help keep temperatures down. The outcome is superb, zesty fresh whites. This is an outstanding 2017 from a great winemaker, Maitena Barrero. She is daughter to one of Tony Laithwaite's first Spanish contacts, Tony Barrero, and certainly has wine in the blood. She works at a very tiny estate and makes this terrific, linear fresh white from the Hondurrabi Zuri grape. Fermented carefully with no oxygen contact and aged on its lees, it is superbly fresh, lemony and minerally zipped with that saline hint of the sea and a characteristic slight bubble too. First class with seafood.

"For a fine white from northern Spain, this dazzling citrus fresh white will be hard to beat" Beth WIllard
