Txakoli from the valley of Getaria is a perfect wine. In a field as subjective as wine, what does that mean? It can’t mean that it will be everyone’s favorite wine all the time, because Txakoli remains – and likely always will – an inexpensive, thrilling crisp white. It can’t be the highest scoring wine in the world because it’s simply not in those conversations. Instead, Txakoli is simply itself, all the time. It is not like anything else, it doesn’t aspire to be Chardonnay or Chenin Blanc or even Albarino, but in the restaurants of San Sebastien or Bilbao, or a country taverna below Mount Txindoki, Txakoli captures the essence of the place perfectly. No Txakoli we know of is more perfect than Mokoroa. Bubbling bright aromas of apple, lime blossom, lemon curd, and sea breeze come before a palate of lemon, lime, acacia blossoms and sea water. This is about as aged as this wine is intended to be, though the extra few months gives it a touch of textural creaminess that insulates us from the sparky acidity. Perfect, but not that complicated, pair this wine with tinned fish, olives and croquetas.
