There is a bar in a castle on a hill overlooking San Sebastian. Urgulleko Polborina is where you go to cool off after a mad-dash feast in the old town’s various Pintxo bars. Urgulleko Polborina is on a terrace overlooking the bay and the mountains beyond, and it might be the best view in the city, perfectly accompanied by that tiny treat, the Basque Gilda: an olive, an anchovy, and a pepper on a toothpick. It’s a simple thing, a simple and tiny atomic explosion of salty, briny flavor. Now Imagine, if you will, this Gilda in the form of a wine. In this charming Txakolina from Txomin Etxaniz, we’re more or less there. Olive brine and savory note of the seaside, with fleur de sel, lemon juice, lime zest, an olive with a touch of goat cheese stuffed inside, and there’s a pickled green pepper too. This is a food wine in the sense that it smells and tastes like food; it fills the imagination with the energy of waves crashing up against the rugged Cantabrian shore, and the palate, light and zesty with meyer lemon and lime mixing with salt and pickle juice, all cut with a textural dash of fresh whipped cream. Mouth-watering citrus and salt stamp the finish. Of course this is a wine for things that come out of the sea. The shorter the cooking time on the dish the better.
