2017 Ameztoi Txakolina Rubentis Rose Getariako
The pink sibling of Ameztoi’s flagship white, this vibrant rosé is made from a mix of red and white indigenous grapes and is bottled with a little residual carbonation to give it a light spritz.
The grapes are combined for destemming; the white and red grapes are worked together, not separately. Fermentation with indigenous yeast occurs in stainless steel at 15° C for 20 days. Bottled with residual carbonation.
Grapes: 50% Hondarribi Beltza and 50% Hondarribi Zuri
Vinous Media, 91 Points:
Light brilliant pink. Incisive, mineral-accented citrus fruit and red berry scents, along with a suave floral nuance. Silky and sharply focused on the palate, showing juicy strawberry, orange zest and mineral qualities and a deeper suggestion of peach pit. Packs a lot of flavor but comes off lithe. The mineral and floral elements carry through a very long, precise, seamless finish.
