Basa Lore Txakkoli 2020

SpainBasa Lore translates from Basque to "Wild Flower from the Forest," reflecting its location and the family philosophy. The property is near San Sebastian in Zarautz, where the cool Bay of Biscay meets the forest. Basa Lore and five other wineries founded the D.O. Getariako Txakolina, the Basque region's answer to Vinho Verde. The wine is made with the Hondarrabi Zuri grape and is delicious. Vibrant and alive with lemon-lime flavours, white flower aromas, and a coating of seaside salinity reminiscent of oyster liquor. . The regional match is fried potatoes and bacalao; on the west coast, I'm thinking about mussels, clams, squid or and rock cod.
