Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions

Shimmering orange-pink. High-pitched red currant, strawberry, orange zest and a bright mineral element on the incisive nose. Lithe and penetrating on the palate, offering intense red berry and citrus fruit flavors that pick up a sexy floral quality as the wine stretches out. Delivers a solid punch of flavor but comes off lithe, betraying no excess fat and finishing very long and precise, with a lingering suggestion of bitter citrus pith. Josh Raynolds - Vinous media

The Txakolina stood out from the other two, not because of its pale copper color, which pretty much matched the Bone-Jolly, but because of its effervescence. Txakolina is the favored drink of Spanish Basque Country, and like most from the Getaria region, the Ameztoi was bottled with a little bit of residual carbon dioxide, which adds just the lightest bit of fizz to the texture. I love this wine. It’s lightly floral with a faint berry smell, which both carry over to the palate. But something else joins in then — a savory, salty edge, as if the winds had blown the sea air from the Bay of Biscay directly into the vineyards. It’s also low in alcohol, just 11 percent, so you can drink a lot of it. - Eric Asimov, New York Times

"By adjusting the blend to increase the amount of Hondarribi Beltza, the red txakolina grape, Ameztoi has made this rosé txakolina that retains all the freshness of traditional white txakolina but with a slight taste of strawberries and red candied fruit. Great for sipping while sharing a warm summer evening with friends." - Winery
