Txakoli is amazing, it really is. It's slightly fizzy but it doesn't fall apart like a lot of other white wines that are made in this style. One does not NEED to serve it ice cold--but it's quite nice that way. Great minerality matched with very pretty floral notes. Super good with light foods--especially fresh (and raw) seafood. However, while i"m obviously a fan this particular txakoli, recently drunk, is past it's prime. Nothing 'off' about it, but the special sparkle is gone. I'd avoid buying this vintage past this date (Mid March 2010) and look for a younger txakoli.
