Tasting Notes: Apple, Peach, Saline, Lime zest
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. #91 WINE ENTHUSIAST 100 2020
Rías Baixas is in the far northwest of Spain. Its oceanic climate is part of what sets this wine apart. They are so close to the water that its influence can be felt in the texture of their wines.
Fans of Sauvignon Blanc’s zippy brightness will adore the Granbazan Etiqueta Albariño. This Albarino is crisp, fresh, complex, and balanced with racy acidity. The palate vibrates with flavors of golden apple, white stone fruits, sea salt, crushed oyster shells, white pepper, peach. lime, lemon and minerals. A great match for sea food dishes like tuna tartare, oysters or grilled fish.
