With its nose full of sour apples and brilliant golden color, Isastegi isn’t about subtlety. Your first taste may seem overpoweringly sour with super-tart apple and grassy notes, followed by a quick scrub of tiny, sharp bubbles. Fresh green salad, fried chicken or traditional Basque fried cod cakes are the recommended pairings, mellowing the acidity of the drink and refreshing the palate between bites. Some enjoy this during the hot summer months, but we’re excited to be drinking it throughout the fall. What do you enjoy mixing with apple flavors?
