La Bodega Txakolí Rezabal
£16.25 (inc VAT)
Refreshing. Bright. Effervescent. Challenging to pronounce. (Cha-kolee, you're welcome.)
The Rezebal family like to describe their wines in one word. For this one they chose "Alegre" cheerful. Cheerful because it is cool, light and easy. Refreshing acidity comes from strong citrus and green apple flavours. This is a smile flashing from across a room, a step out into bright sunlight, a quick magic trick, an unexpected fiver in your pocket.
La Bodega Txakoli Rezabal is a three generation wine producer from Zarautz in the DO Getariako Txakolina in the Basque country of Northern Spain. Getariako Txakolina from Zarautz was the first variety of txakoli to receive the DO certification in 1989, so the Rezebal have been part of the Txakolina renaissance from the beginning, a fact of which they are humbly (but justifiably) proud.
