From the International Wine Cellar
2012 Arabako Txakolina Xarmant Txakoli
International Wine Cellar, #170, Sept/Oct 2013 - Josh Raynolds
($17) Light yellow. Melon and lemon curd on the nose. Silky honeydew and citrus fruit flavors are given a refreshingly bitter edge by quinine and pear skin qualities. The dry, focused finish features a dusty mineral nuance and very good persistence.
2011 Arabako Txakolina Xarmant Txakolina
International Wine Cellar, #164, Sept./Oct. 2012 - Josh Raynolds
($17) Pale yellow. High-pitched aromas and flavors of lime pith, lemongrass, white flowers and chalky minerals. Racy and precise, with impressive power and cut on a finish that features zesty mineral and ginger nuances.
