Gaintza Roses, 2021, 750ml
From 100% estate-grown indigenous varieties Hondarrabi Beltza and Hondarrabi Zuri, this is a classic Getaria-style Txakolina Rose, with light effervescence and brilliant, refreshing acidity. Low in alcohol, this is beach wine par excellence. Bright salmon-pink. On the nose, aromas of lemon, raspberry, and strawberry with a whiff of salt. On the palate, mouthwateringly bright and effervescent. Snappy with gulpable appeal, with fraises de bois, bright raspberry and mineral flavors. Finishes salty and clean, begging for another sip. Gaintza Roses' low alcohol, effervescence and bright acidity make it a wonderful aperitif on its own, but it would be beautiful with shellfish, shrimp, and fried seafood.
