Vibrant lime and green apple on the bracing nose, complemented by hints of salty minerals and quinine. Very fresh citrus fruit and mineral flavors are accented by ginger and fennel nuances. Packs a serious punch but comes off as lithe, with no excess fat. Finishes very long, with excellent focus and mineral lift, leaving a suave floral quality behind.
"The Astobiza winery is rooted in the winemaking tradition of the Ayala Valley, whose origins can be traced back to Retes de Llanteno according to the first written records from the year 864. The Astobiza facilities are located at the foot of the vineyard, where the land and the building blend into one, at the core of our wine-making operation. Although the old 18th century farmhouse remains, the modern production and storage plant decorate the agricultural landscape with traditional architecture and state-of-the-art equipment."
