Adegas Gran Vinum is a family winery owned by Enrique Pineiro. In 1998 the Val do Salnes subregion was added to D.O. Rias Baixas spurring a renewed focus on quality wines. Adegas Gran Vinum reacted by adding new vineyard plots on steep, sandy, south-facing slopes, near the ocean which minimized temperature swings and extended maturation times giving more spice, saline and fruity varietal character to the wines.

Soils in the vineyards are enriched in the traditional manner by digging in shells of local mollusks.The “Selección Especial” from Adegas Gran Vinum is an outstanding young Albariño, offering up superb depth and complexity right out of the blocks, but also with the structure to age very nicely for at least the next decade.

Fact Sheet

93pts View from the Cellar – 2019 vintage

Gran Vinum’s Seleccion Especial is produced from fifty-plus year-old Albarino vines. The wine is aged for seven months on its fine lees, with a small percentage of the blend raised in older Burgundy casks, rather than the stainless steel for the remainder of the cuvee.

The 2019 offers up a lovely bouquet of grapefruit, lemon peel, ocean breeze saltiness, wild fennel and a lovely base of wet stone minerality. On the palate the wine is deep, vibrant, full-bodied and complex, with a fine core, excellent mineral drive and backend lift and a long, zesty and very well-balanced finish.

This is drinking beautifully but will also age very gracefully. 2021-2035+.
