2008 Isastegi Sagardo Naturala (Natural Cider) Pais Vasco

SKU #1047334

Still apple cider from Pais Vasco - are you kidding me? This is a product I recently fell in love with. It's wildly popular in San Sebastian, where locals down it by the glass with pintxos (tapas). Redolent of apples (no surprises there) on the nose, the palate is tangy, very slightly fizzy (think txacoli or vinho verde fizz, not sparkling wine fizz), only 6% abv and a joy to drink. That having been said, it's really quite tangy, bordering on sour, and not for everyone. However, if you are a fan of either a.) hard cider b.) geuze, fruit lambics or flemish sour ales or c.) any naturally made, local specialty product then I think you have a winner on your hands here. Delicious stuff, directo from Pais Vasco.

Additional Information:



- With more land under vine than any other country in the world, Spain is the great sleeping wine giant. In recent years, a great deal of money and passion has been poured in the burgeoning Spanish wine industry, helping to improve quality among its vast array of wines from sparkling Cava to Sherry to Rioja Gran Reserva. The most important red-wine-producing regions are Rioja, Ribera del Duero and Navarra in the north and Priorat and Penedes in the northeast.
