Excellence here from Spain. Unheralded txakolina is emerging as a perfectly acceptable substitute for traditional Old World whites. Zesty lemon, limestone, chalk, stone fruit, and underripe pear give way to briny acidity and a long, clean finish. There is just an elegant tartness and nice balance of acid vs fruit. Above average body and structure. The finish was screaming for seafood. So I indulged in oysters with lemon and vinaigrette. Well done, Gorrondona.

You could fetch the Porron but this is weighty and best for a good old fashioned wine glass. Lemon zing with underlay of cream. Nothing not to smile about.
