4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A Mes rate. Bottle at Txikiteo, Barcelona.
Wow, really was not expecting this one. Beautifully tart and almost over-ripe on the nose with a dry, take your breath away sourness. Flavour; woo hoooo this is excellent. Really tart and dry but with a bolo punch sweetness that balances it out beautifully along wiht a chewy wooden note that gives it just the right amount of body to make it not too thin but not sticky enough to harm the drinkability. Amazinglysmooth considering how dry it is and the assertive citrus in the finish fades seamlessly into a lasting cantaloupe aftertaste. A bloody excellent bit of fermentation. These Spanish ciders can vary wildly batch to batch. If all of these are this good, then I wish I could drink this regularly.
