Spanish Tortilla

This is a classic tapa in Spain, and a wonderful and easy addition to a buffet party, brunch or dinner menu. Great on its own, or as an accompaniment, the Spanish tortilla embraces the simplicity of traditional Spanish cuisine and elevates the humble potato to a starring role. A dish like this deserves a simple wine, but one that highlights something as elemental as the potato in the tortilla.

I love Txacoli here, mineral and precise, with mouth-cleansing acid and in most cases a playful petillance. It’s a wine that seems perfectly suited to use as a foil for the rich, earthy flavors of tortilla. The 2010 Txakoli Txomin Etxaniz de Guetaria accompanies this dish perfectly.

Assyrtiko from Santorini in Greece is a wine that shares much with Txacoli, mineral rich with mouth-cleansing acidity and lovely clarity of flavor, it even ages well and an example with some age on it might have just the right savory edge to pair with the earthy potatoes.
