This Basque White Blew Us Away: 2023 Rezabal Txakolina Blanco

The 2023 Rezabal Tkakoli is the white wine I'll be drinking a lot this spring and summer....I bought a case for myself! A wine that just jumped up and grabbed me, this Spanish white is like a cross of a Loire Sauv Blanc, an Albarino, and a gin and tonic.

Refreshment in a bottle, that's what you get here! While Basque whites might be made with grapes unfamiliar to most, I find their flavor profiles to be quite familiar. Rezabal is for lovers of crisp, bright, and mineralic white wines.

2023 Rezabal de Getariako Txakolina Blanco

The most refreshing white wine on the planet. - 93 points - Yours Truly 

You'll have to trust me when I say this is one of the most satisfying wines I've had this year. Txakoli is the name of the wine, and this one comes from a small, family-run estate located near the town of Getaria, in the Bay of Biscay. This is a small fishing village, and it's wines like this that have been served with the "fresh catch" on a daily basis for many years.

Good Txakolina Blanco has been fully embraced by American wine lovers, and for good reason. Simply put, the wine's success has been accelerated in the US because the wines are so damned easy to love. They're light but not lacking in flavor, they're bright but the acidity is balanced, and they're just ever-so-slightly frizzante and also lower in alcohol.

If you've enjoyed Albarino, Sancerre, or Muscadet, I'm confident you will love this charming white wine. From certified organic vineyards owned by a small family winery, the grape that is always going to be associated with world-class White Txakoli is Hondarrabi Zuri. This high-toned grape has produced a wine that just explodes out of the glass with notes of tangerine, lime zest, green pear, lemon, and salty minerality.

Concentrated but light on its feet, this hits the palate with force and vigor, and the finish goes on for a good 30+ seconds. I can't wait to try it with oysters, fish stew, and sunny and warm days. You should do the same!
