Winemaker's Notes

Albariño is the local grape and is known for its ability to ripen in this cool corner of Spain. In addition, it maintains its natural acidity well leading to fresh, balanced wines. Adegas Gran Vinum uses different rootstocks on free-draining slopes as opposed to slightly more fertile plots to assure even ripening.

Critical Acclaim

"Light yellow-gold. Pungent, pure aromas of honeydew, quinine, ginger and mint, with a kiss of jasmine. Offers good density and richness but also lively cut, with complex flavors of melon, citrus fruits and exotic bitter quinine. Finishes long, spicy and vibrant. "
