Granbazán Don Álvaro De Bazán Albarino

£30.00

Grapes are sourced from the peak of Finca Tremoedo, the coolest part of the vineyard, just behind the winery building. Here the soil is shallow and granite-rich, producing a complex Albariño with the acidity and mineral structure of a wine capable of great ageing.

Produced from 100% estate-grown Albariño – cultivated in a single plot of the Finca Tremoedo vineyard in Vilanova de Arousa. Vines of average age approaching 40 years are pergola-trained in shallow granite soils. The grapes are hand-harvested into 17kg crates. After 12 hours contact with the skins, the free-run juice undergoes fermentation with indigenous yeasts in stainless steel. The wine is aged on fine lees for 36 months.

Tasting notes Ripe citrus and orchard fruit aromas with a touch of honeysuckle. The palate is gently rounded, with lemon and stone fruit notes backed by appealing floral characters, leesy notes and a long mineral finish.
