Dave’s Pick: 2016 Ameztoi Txakolina Rosé, $17.99

A unique mix of red and white grapes (50/50 Hondarribi Beltza and Hondarribi Zuri) from Spain’s Basque country, it’s the perfect antidote against the summer heat. Pours a faint salmon pink with just the barest hint of miniscule bubbles. The nose is rather reserved, offering soft citrus and rhubarb.  A bit closed on the palate at first as well, but as it opens up, you get tart strawberry and mandarin orange with crisp citrus on the finish. The perfect patio sipper as well a great food wine. Think shellfish, Asian cuisine, fish tacos—you get the idea.
