Winemaker Notes

Pale golden color, with shiny reflexes of lemon towards the edge. Great olfactory complexity, reflecting clearly the varietal characteristics with aromas of fresh seeded fruits, pineapple, green apple, lemon and banana. Mouthfilling with a crisp acidity. Elegant, balanced and pleasant aftertaste.

Critical Acclaim

WE 91
Wine Enthusiast

Dry, dusty, elegant peach and minerally notes open this excellent Albariño. The lightest bit of spritz gives edge and zest to a medium-full palate. Flavors of stone fruits, wild herbs, field greens and white pepper finish healthy, with a melony aftertaste.

Granbazan
Ask a Spanish wine professional to name the leading and best Albarino, and chances are they'll reply Granbazan. Founded in 1981, Granbazan was the original quality pioneer in the region, the first estate to invest in modern winemaking equipment and trained enologists, the first to use clean, free run juice and cool fermentation and to realize the world class potential of the Albarino grape.

Granbazan farms 17 hectares of Albarino vines in Val do Salnes, the sub-region of the Rias Baixas which is centered around the town of Cambados. Val do Salnes is the site of the oldest Albarino plantations. It is also the coldest and wettest of the five sub-regions. The average temperature for the year is 55°F and it rarely exceeds 85°F, even in the hottest part of the summer. Grapes are trained in the traditional pergola fashion and soils are based on granite with alluvial topsoil.

Granbazan remains ahead of the chasing pack, with its privileged terroir of granite soils planted with mature vines close to the sea, and its continuing commitment to excellence.

Other Red Blends

View all wine

With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to create complex wines with many different layers of flavors and aromas, or to create more balanced wines. For example, a variety that is soft and full-bodied may be combined with one that is lighter with naturally high acidity. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
