Lately, I’ve been seeing the Basque white wine Txakolina (pronounced choco-lina) everywhere. Wanting to find out what all the hubbub was about, I picked up a bottle at my local Whole Foods. I grabbed Txomin Etxaniz Getariako Txakolina, and while I wouldn’t describe it as mind-blowing, I can honestly say it was truly enjoyable. Crisp and slightly effervescent from its natural carbonic gas, it has a slight underlying mustiness, making this a wine with quite a personality.
