Tasting Notes Rezabal winery is a 3rd generation family owned estate, sustainably farmed, and all harvested by hand. The 22 hectares of vineyards (53 acres) are established in the best hillsides of Zarautz and Getaria, and are strongly influenced by the daily sea breeze. Rezabal Txakoli is a dry white wine with a bit of fine fizz. Light in color with an almost green hue - aromas and flavors of intense fresh citrus fruits and green apple. The finish is bright and extremely fresh.
Jeb Dunnick 92: Starting with the 2018s and aged all in stainless steel and bottled in February, the 2018 Châteauneuf Du Pape Blanc shows the more medium-bodied, forward, supple style that’s common in the whites in the vintage. Light spice, pear, quince, licorice, and crushed citrus notes all give way to a medium-bodied, silky, elegant white that’s drinking beautifully already. I don’t expect it to be the longest-lived white by Avril’s standards, but it should easily evolve nicely for 5-7 years.
