Txomin Etxaniz Txakoli White 2011 (85% Hondarrabi Zuri [white], 15% Hondarrabi Beltza [black])
Nice crisp green fruits, almost like a sparkling viura/macabeu, some herbal elements. Lovely spritz on the mouth with some very delicate creaminess, very tight and crisp, mouth-puckering aperetivo style wine, perfect with salty seafood tapas, very subtle R/S roundness, but a core of green citrus fruits.
Txakoli Rose 2011 (50% Hondarrabi Zuri [white] , 50% Hondarrabi Beltza [black])
Pale salmon colour, with the same delicate spritz. Slightly more nutty and herbal, green red fruits. A tad bitter with the tannins, balanced and fresh but lacking the zing of the white, a little dull in comparison.
