    Barrika - Basque Country Cider NV (750ml) - Corkscrew Wines Brooklyn
    : Medium-bodied, very dry. Nicely balanced Sidra with a tart, fizzy, palate and notes of green, ripe, and browning apples. The finish is not too funky or vinegar-laden, making it the perfect thirst quencher and food pairing. Pair with cured fish, funky cheeses, as well as red meat. Juan Inaxio Astiazaran uses 6 indigenous apple varieties to fill 12 chestnut barrels (barrikas) of cider per batch. Though time-consuming, he employs wild yeast, uses no additives, and allows extended contact between juice and pulp. The biggest difference between Barrika and other brands is that Barrika is fresher and vintage-dated on the neck of the 750ml bottle. Finally, the number on the cork corresponds to the barrel it came from. It's good to know the provenance of what you drink.
