REGION: Basque Country/Spain
VARIETAL: Hondarrabi Beltza
NOTES: Balea Txakoli is a young, fruity white wine. Of moderate strength (11º) and with a slight characteristic acidity, it is a highly unique, distinctive wine. It should be served chilled; that way, it gives off its full range of aromas along with tiny carbonic acid bubbles, which is the result of its characteristic wine-making process.
FOOD PAIRING: Seared Pork Belly & Green Pepper Pinchos w/ Lemon Zest
