Granbazan, Don Alvaro de Bazan Albarino 2015 - May 2021 Decanter review
Bodegas Granbazan was established in the heart of the Val do Salnés, Rías Baixas, in 1981. The winery and Bordeaux-style manor house is at the centre of the 13.5 hectare Finca Tremoedo vineyard. Their focus is purely on the Albariño grape and to that end the vineyard was planted in 1980 with a range of Albariño clones from across Galicia. Finca Tremoedo consists of 10 different plots, each with its own microclimate, and each tended and harvested separately.
Produced from 100% estate-grown Albariño - cultivated in a single plot of the Finca Tremoedo vineyard in Vilanova de Arousa. Vines of average age approaching 40 years are pergola-trained in shallow granite soils. The grapes are hand-harvested into 17kg crates. After 12 hours contact with the skins, the free-run juice undergoes fermentation with indigenous yeasts in stainless steel. The wine is aged on fine lees for 36 months.
Ripe citrus and orchard fruit aromas with a touch of honeysuckle. The palate is gently rounded, with lemon and stone fruit notes backed by appealing floral characters, leesy notes and a long mineral finish.
