($20) (70% hondarribi zuri, 20% mune mahatsa, a.k.a. sauvignon blanc and 10% txori mahatsa, a.k.a. folle blanche): Pale yellow. Displays incisive aromas and flavors of fresh citrus fruits, quinine and chalky minerals, along with a subtle floral nuance and a touch of ginger. Dry and racy, showing no excess fat and finishing with strong mineral cut. This would be a great wine to serve with raw shellfish or sashimi of lighter fish, like fluke.

($17) Pale, green-tinged yellow.  High-pitched citrus fruit and floral scents, with a smoky mineral overtone.  Dry, nervy and focused, offering bitter lemon/lime and quince flavors and a hint of honeysuckle.  Closes zesty and long, with lingering spiciness and very good clarity.
