Astobiza is a small, family-owned and operated winery in the Ayala Valley of Spain's Basque country. Named after a portion of the mountains nearby, Astobiza is a young bodega with old family history in winemaking. This vermouth starts with Astobiza Txakoli as the base wine, and is blended with a proprietary blend of botanicals that were collected from the vineyards as well as citrus fruits from the region, in order to reflect the aroma and terroir of the Ayala Valley. It's fortified with Astobiza Gin and softened with fresh grape must from the Hondarabbi Zuri vines. Floral and citric and very complex in the nose, the palate is soft and remarkably tasty and easy to drink, full of vibrant acidity, lemon, grapefruit, and pleasantly bitter herbs.
