2005 Talai Berri Getariako Txakolina Txakolin Beltza

  • 2005 Talai Berri Getariako Txakolina Txakolin Beltza – Spain, País Vasco, Getariako Txakolina (6/14/2006)
    12% Alcohol – Grape Variety: Hondarribi Beltza
    Deep maroon in color with a general lightness. The nose is strange and takes some time to open up. Weedy minerals, actually gravel, with raspberry seed woodiness(light) and red currant(sour) notes. In the mouth it’s a bit flabby though there is an underlying acidty that is quite strong along with a tannin presence that is soft and fine, coating the mouth. On the palate this wine is again unusual with mineral notes, cranberry and sour raspberry being the primary fruit flavors. I guess I would call this one weedy with a underbrush like characteristic. Worth trying.
