This is a really delicious and zesty Albariño. Fresh almost tropical aromas then stone fruit and citrus on the palate with a creamy texture, mineral notes, vibrant acidity and a slight seaside saltiness. It is ripe and complex in style but with fresh balancing acidity and good length on the finish.
Try with a seafood stew.
"I love Albariño, and this is a superb example from the grape's heartland of Rias Baixas in north-west Spain. It captures the pure, concentrated fruit and lipsmacking freshness that makes this grape so appealing. I'd enjoy it with a plate garlicky langoustines."
Bodegas Granbazan was established in the heart of the Val do Salnés, Rías Baixas, in 1981. The winery and Bordeaux-style manor house is at the centre of the 13.5 hectare Finca Tremoedo vineyard. Their focus is purely on the Albariño grape and to that end the vineyard was planted in 1980 with a range of Albariño clones from across Galicia. Finca Tremoedo consists of 10 different plots, each with its own microclimate, and each tended and harvested separately.
Produced from 100% estate-grown Albariño sourced from the warmest plots of Finca Tremoedo vineyard in Vilanova de Arousa - just a kilometre from the sea. The vines are around 35 years old, and are pergola-trained in sandy granite soils. Grapes are hand-harvested into 17kg crates. All free-run juice, with long skin contact (12 hours) and fermentation in stainless steel using indigenous yeasts. The wine is aged on fine lees for 8 months.
