Quintessential is the only word I can use to describe this wine. This is a new favorite and staple in my wine fridge.
This Albarino comes from a careful selection of fruit from vines over 35 years old and harvested by hand. The nose is lively and intense with aromas of ripe tropical fruit, pear, lime blossom, mandarin and subtle notes of marzipan and brioche from the 8 months of fine lees aging. The finish is long and salty.
Organic and sustainable farming practices.
Enjoy this with pork belly, salmon, or any kind of yummy Fish Tacos!

Bodegas GRANBAZÁN, was founded in 1981 and is located in the Salnés Valley, in the heart of the Rías Baixas (Galicia). It is a beautiful neoclassical building covered with blue tile of strong Indian influence, facing north, protected from the hot rays of light coming from the south, and surrounded by old Albariño vineyards. It is undoubtedly one of the first and most beautiful châteaux in Galicia, where noble materials merge with the landscape and the architecture is at the service of the best grapes.
The GRANBAZÁN Winery was founded in Galicia over 37 years ago in the hands of an ambitious wine project whose aim was to achieve wines capable of imprinting the privileged climatic conditions from the Salnés Valley. At that time, GRANBAZÁN starred in the most important agroindustrial revolution in the history of Galicia.
It is currently a reference in R + D + I in the field of viticulture and enology. Val do Salnés is the site of the oldest Albariño plantations. It is also the coldest and wettest of the five sub-regions. Grapes are trained in the traditional pergola fashion and soils are based on granite with alluvial topsoil. Granbazán supplements their estate fruit with long-term contracts with smallholders in the area.
