Txotx! is a sidra natural, inspired by the sidra and Txakoli wines of northern Spain. Both of those are still (not sparkling) and meant to be poured from a height. Txotx! is no different.
Pouring from a height volatizes the aromas by adding oxygen to the cider — similar to decanting a wine, but really really fast! This bottle comes with a special cork that doubles as a spout, so you can long pour without spilling a drop.
Txotx! is a blend of a barrel aged golden plum cider (93%), with Muscat Ottonel (7%).
What's it like?: The aroma is floral and tropical, somewhere between apple blossoms and sweet violets. Underneath that is muddled pineapple, which comes through much more in the flavour. It also tastes of papaya and sweetgrass, with a touch of sweet body and tannin from the barrels.
Being still, it's easy to crush and perfect to pair with fatty cheeses, preserved meats and briny olives.
