Like if Germany were on vacation in the Pyrenees. Completely dry, Riesling with a touch of Albariño giving it a little of that saline edge

Almost like Germany, but Spanish. Blend of Riesling and Albariño. Acid is lower than Riesling and the finish is slightly & pleasantly bitter. Lemony, with flowers, petrol, lager, and a hefty mineral flare.

Riesling from Costers del Segre. Wins serious dork points. Clare Valley meets Alsace.
