Deep straw cast. Moderately light-bodied. Balanced acidity. Yeast, bread, minerals. Fragrant, but lighter is style with a sense of softness to the palate. Tasty but lacking somewhat for grip.

Bright golden color. Moderately light-bodied. Yeast, citrus zest. Muted rancio aromas lead a crispy flavored palate with some tart astringency through the finish that give this a simple but refreshing edge.

Smooth and silky, this fino’s cidery fruit comes up against a briny finish. Bring on the littleneck clams.
