100% Hondarrabi Zuri
A wine from vineyards overlooking the Bay of Biscay in Basque country. Pale green, faint aromas of green apples and plums, very light bright, sharp and salty with biting acidity and a savoury saltiness as well as the classic Txakoli "spritz".
Comando G, La Bruja de Rozas - Rozas de Puerto Real, Sierra de Gredosmaine 100% Garnacha
Good freshness, delicate fruit, depth, tension and length.
Finca Casa Balaguer, Tragolargo Blanco - Alicante, South-East Spain
Moscatel and Malvasia
Golden in colour with aromas of orange blossom and fennel with some delicate floral notes. This medium body wine has a delicious acidity and freshness, as well as the array of aromas and flavours of white and citrus fruits, rich honey and mineral tones with a long and elegant finish.
Heraclio Alfaro, Rioja Crianza – La Rioja
Tempranillo, Garnacha and Graciano
Intense colour, elegant nose. Nice ripe black fruit, red fruit jam and spices, well-integrated oak. Balance on the palate, dense, soft and fresh with a long finish.
Recaredo, Corpinnat Terrers Brut Nature - Sant Sadurní d’Anoia, Barcelona
58% Xarel.lo, 32% Macabeu, 10% Monastrell
Pale yellow in colour with golden tinges. The nose is pure and elegant with deep mineral notes combined with aromas of white fruit, white flowers and smoke and dry fruit. The very fresh palate has a crisp and well-defined structure which is dry and smooth at the same time. The bubbles are perfectly integrated, and the wine has a long finish with delicate notes of aniseed and white fruit, nuanced by a smoky touch.
Emilio Hidalgo, Pedro Ximenez - Jerez de la Frontera, Andaluciamaine 100% Pedro Ximenez
Very dark, almost opaque colour; the aroma is of toasted nuts from old solera and hints of raisins and flavours reminiscent of dates, sweet figs and molasses. Long and complex and very pure. Try it over vanilla ice cream, hmmm…
