Hondarrabi Zuri 2005

Produced from 100% Hondarrabi Zuri grapes, a variety native to the Basque area where this wine is produced. The nose of the wine is explosive, reminiscent of Sardinian Vermentino—herbal and floral at once, even a bit tropical. The palate carries this impression through and amplifies it, supported by vibrant acidity. The body is medium but the complexity and length of the flavors create a big, memorable experience.
