Doniene Txakoli Tinto 2018
a real rarity to find it in the UK. Doniene was formed by 3 friends who rescued and modernized an ancient winery that was a bit dilapidated. They are located in Txakoli Bizkaiko, based in the north-western part of the Basque country, where this winery is situated right next to the sea.
This is odd, there is no two ways about it, but we think in a good way. Medium bodied, with a bit of spice, herbal notes and loads of crisp forest fruit. The finish is refreshing, with good acidity and soft tannins. Like its white counterparts, this makes really good summer drinking, but is also really food friendly. Very tasty indeed.
