I was told that this is a Basque region wine, and that it is Viura( a.k.a. Macabeo)
MMMMM... its lightly bubbly like Vino Verde, got a great crisp crab apple, and citrus nose with a touch of lanolyn and lavender.
 the palate is very close, with a bit of melon and lemon rind.
I think this sells for about $11 a bottle and is just really fun!

If it's the one I know, it's Catalan rather than Basque. The local wouldn't be happy if you mixed them up :-) Sells for about 3-5 euros here.

There are lots of nice crisp roses and whites in northern Spain.
