Talai Berri 'Finca Jakue' Txakolina Rosado, Getariako Txakolina, Spain 2022

Located in the charming fishing village of Zarautz, this family winery is one of the top small producers in the D.O. Getariako Txakolina. Bixente Eizaguirre, founder of the winery in 1992, is a fourth generation winemaker and his daughters, who now are very active in winery operations, are the fifth. Txakolina (or Txakoli) is a light, slightly sparkling, and often slightly acidic wine style particular to the Basque region in northeastern Spain. Situated in a picturesque coastal area, the winery benefits from a unique microclimate influenced by the Bay of Biscay. 

Talai Berri focuses on the two principal native varieties of the region: Hondarrabi Zuri (white) and Hondarrabi Beltza (red), which both thrive in this cooler coastal climate. The hilly region, which is challenged by irregular weather patterns that can shift from cold and rainy to warm and sunny, is perfect for these highly adaptable grape varieties.  

The rosé Jakue shows off bright, tart berry flavors, with a hint of saltiness and a light effervescence in the palate. Made of equal parts red and white grapes, the family hand harvests them in small cases, and then sorts and de-stems before crushing the grapes and macerating them for a few hours. The cool fermentation (61F max) then takes place in stainless steel tanks, and produces a light pink wine with intense aromatics of fresh strawberry, floral citrus and soft mineral notes. The crisp, refreshing palate makes it perfect as an aperitif, or as a partner to fresh, simple seafood preparations.   — Simi Grewal
