Camino roca

Txakolina, "Roca Altxerri" 2015

Camino

The gentle fizz (as is traditional for Txakoli) is just one of the many charming elements to Roca Altxerri. Bone dry with angular but balanced acidity with a plethora of fruit notes including grapefruit and melon with fresh grass and spring flower notes on the nose. Break out the porrón!

Reviews

  • "90 points. Pale yellow. High-pitched aromas of lemon zest, orange, pear and chalky minerals, accented by a gingery topnote. Clean, sharply focused citrus and underripe orchard fruit flavors are enlivened by a bitter quinine note. Finishes firm and taut, with strong mineral bite and a lingering floral note." (vinous, 2014 vintage)
