Bright green-yellow. On the nose, high toned aromas of lemon, quince, green apple and sorrel are overlaid with sea spray and stony mineral notes. On the palate, puckering acidity and effervescence lend a practically gulpable appeal, with bright Meyer lemon, apple and green herbs. Finishes salty and clean, begging for another sip.
Gaintza’s low alcohol, effervescence and bright acidity make it a wonderful aperitif on its own, but it would be beautiful with shellfish, shrimp, and fried seafood.
Blend: 85% Hondarrabi Zuri, 10% Gros Manseng, 5% Hondarrabi Beltza
