Wine Review: This light-yellow gold colored Hondarrabi Zuri from Spain opens with a pear and honey bouquet with hints of minerality and wet oyster shells. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with very bright plus acidity. The mouthfeel is rounded and quite refreshing. The flavor profile a lemon-lime and saline blend with notes of chalky minerality and pineapple. We also detected hints of Anjou pear and ginger. The finish is dry, long and continues to be refreshing. This Hondarrabi Zuri would pair nicely with Steve’s sautéed scallops. Enjoy - Ken & Steve

Winemaker Notes: Crystal clear, with pale greenish yellow and lemony sparkle. Intense aromas of reineta apple, clear mineral notes typical of the terroir. White flowers such as chamomile and citrus fruits such as grapefruit and lemon stand out, with a salted background that binds it to the Cantabrian sea. Its full mouthfeel makes it a round and glyceric wine but with the fresh and Atlantic character of the txakolis. The acidity makes it an ideal wine to store and enjoy with aging in the bottle for at least 10 years. Pairs well with seafood and fish (turbot, tuna), and sushi.
