I love wines like this, low alcohol, clean fresh nose, and a palate full of fruit, minerals and spritzy acidity. A touch of round cream at the finish tidies it up nicely and I think I might have found the perfect summer sipper. Basque country is making some great wines as of late, ones like this are proof!

Bit woody on the nose, but really a pretty nose with some nice violets and great red fruit. Opening it I was a bit disappointed but it seems to be opening further with some nice spice. In the mouth very fine tannins with nice fruit. A bit tart, but full of flesh and opportunity. If you do happen to grab a bottle, let it sit for another 4-5 years. Really should be nice with some time.

Pure orange perfume nose. Palate that is balanced by amazing acidity and lovely unctuous texture. Perfect end of the night treat, of which a note will do no good. Just buy a bottle and woo some women! :)
