Natural wine. Barbera, Grignolino, and Freisa are the varietals. Scents of tart cranberries and cherry skin with the slightest barnyard hay.

2014 Errekalde Txakolina Hiruzta Txakoli Blanco, Spain

Hondarrabi Zuri and Gros Manseng are the varietals. Zesty on the nose with lime pith, lime juice, crushed apple, white pepper and chalky minerals. Scents carry through on the slightly effervescent palate with bright lime and apple flavors backed by just a hint of creme fresh. Finishes zippy, dry and clean with lime, apples and minerals lingering. Tasty stuff from the Basque region in Spain. This screams for mussels or your favorite shellfish. $19.99
