Astobiza Txacoli, Alava 2021

White Wine from Spain
3.000000000 star rating 1 Reviews
A delicious example of the northern Spanish speciality, txacoli, from the Alava region near Rioja which makes a slightly fuller style of this white. Floral and appley, this is dry, tangy and precise, perfect for shellfish.

Of all Spain's varied wines, few are as "left field" as those from the Basque country and txakoli is quite rare outside that region. It is a frizzante-style white wine designed to be drunk young. Classically light with a tingling prickle of acidity, this version brings us clean-tasting green apple and grapefruit flavours coupled with crisp lime acidity and a lively finish that incorporates traces of mace.

Txacoli is usually a coastal wine, often with a slight spritz. This one comes from further inland, near Rioja. Fuller bodied, and without a spritz. It's still utterly delicious with a brisk, marine aroma, softening on the palate to give juicy green apple flavours. Fresh and vibrant, drink it in its youth. 92/100

Interesting salty/herbal aroma, sour, earthy and unusual – in a good way. Earthy on the palate, too. Richer than what I think of as typical Txacoli, which can be quite lean. Needs some nice Basque fish as ...
Interesting salty/herbal aroma, sour, earthy and unusual – in a good way. Earthy on the palate, too. Richer than what I think of as typical Txacoli, which can be quite lean. Needs some nice Basque fish as an accompaniment. Distinctive, bone dry and salty on the finish. This may not appeal to those who prefer fruit-driven wines but why not try something different? 16/20

Txacoli is a great summer white, light in body and perfect for pairing with fish or seafood. It's usually a coastal wine, often with a slight spritz. This incarnation comes from further inland, near Rioja – it's fuller bodied than some, and doesn't have a spritz. It's still utterly delicious though, with a brisk, marine aroma, softening on the palate slightly to give juicy green apple flavours. Fresh and vibrant, drink it in its youth. 92/100

Influenced by the Atlantic, Txakoli is renowned for its searing acidity, but this example comes from the Basque Country’s Alava region – inland, with some altitude. The enamel on your teeth will certainly welcome this generous, fuller-textured wine. Made from hondarrabi zuri, salinity gives way to flinty minerality, with plump apple, juicy grapefruit and a revitalising crispness.
