Granbazán, Albariño Etiqueta Verde, DO Rías Baixas 2020Regular price €21.00
Gorgeously fruity, fresh white with an exuberant nose of passionfruit, hawthorn and honey, followed by a medium-bodied, zingy palate of citrus fruits. Clean, minerally finish with the faintest suggestion of maritime Galicia.
Enjoy this perennial customer and staff favourite with seafood or as an aperitif.
“Full on flavours of gooseberry, peaches, and white flowers. Inviting creaminess.”
Decanter World Wine Awards , Silver Medal (2010 vintage)
Peñín Guide 2012 - Silver Medal, 86/100
“Pale gold. Bright and energetic on the nose, displaying fresh Meyer lemon and green apple scents that give way to a deeper melon quality on the back half. Juicy and focused on the palate, offering sappy citrus and orchard fruit flavors and a touch of honeysuckle. The floral quality carries through a long, mineral-tinged finish that emphatically echoes the orchard fruit note.”
Vinous, 90/100 (May 2017, 2015 vintage)
“Aromas of fresh citrus fruits, crushed vitamins and nectarine are pleasant and welcoming. This offers good acidic cut and overall balance. Flavors of stone fruits focus on apricot and nectarine, while the finish is elegant.”

Albariño is synonymous with the rainy DO of Rías Baixas in north-west Spain, where it accounts for 90% of all plantings. Officially, 12 varieties are allowed in the DO, but little is seen of the other whites - Loureiro, Caiño blanco, Treixadura, Godello, Torrontés - and less again of the six permitted red grapes.
Rías Baixas is named after the flooded coastal valleys - rías - that penetrate 30km inland along the length of the region.
