Granbazán Albariño Don Álvaro de Bazán DO Rías BaixasRegular price €35.00
A special selection of fine Albariño, named as a tribute to Don Álvaro de Bazán, sixteenth century sea captain and Spain’s most famous sailor.
The fruit for this lush, perfumed wine comes from old vines on very poor soils in the highest part of the company's Tremoedo vineyard, to give a real essence of the Rías Baixas. Malolactic fermentation is not allowed to take place, so that the tart freshness of the old vine fruit flavours can shine—but complexity and depth are added by a year's aging on lees, adding hints of ginger and tropical fruits to grassy citrus juiciness and a long, mineral finish.
