Herri Mina Irouleguy Blanc 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"The blend for his dry white Irouléguy is 55% Gros Manseng, 40% Petit Courbu and 5% Petit Manseng. Gros Manseng confers acidity and freshness, while Petit Manseng provides ripe fruit, roundness and complexity. Petit Courbu, being the oldest vines, gives some vinosity to the final wine. The grapes are picked in small baskets, sorted, then pressed. The juice ferments in stainless steel vats and the wine stays on lees until it is bottled in the spring. Berrouet endeavors to make an expressive wine, without technical intervention that might muffle the terroir. His philosophy is to let nature have the highest possible influence, and thus bring a sense of the Basque country to the many expatriates who now live in the United States." -Importer

Drinking really salty. Then got Too Boots buffalo chicken pizza and it came to life.
