Tasting Note                         

89+    2010  Ameztoi  Getariako Txakolina   8/25/12 ($16)

90% Hondarribi Zuri, 10% Hondarribi Beltza    10.5% alc
Color: Looks like mineral water with a slight lemon tint and a slight fizz seen only while pouring. (3.0) Bouquet: Lively mineral, honeydew melon and lime. Delicate yet persistent. (3.0) Body: Slight frizzante with a tiny bubble and mineral mouthfeel. Light in weight, but still shows excellent fruit and minerality. (3.0) Flavor: Parallels bouquet. (3.0) Finish: Fruit fades quickly with delicate mineral tang lingering. (2.5)
Overall: This is a perfect summer white. Elegant minerality accompanies delicate, precise lime and honeydew fruit. This is what Prosecco aspires to be, a light but serious summer white with fizz. (16.0)
