Vintage

Adegas Gran Vinum is a second generation, family owned winery that has been producing Albariño since the 1980’s, prior to the creation of the Denomination of Origin Rias Baixas. They focus exclusively on Albariño from the Val do Salnes sub-region, which offers vineyard sites with distinct maritime influence.

The wines produced from both estate vineyards and vineyards they manage seek a repeatable saline undercurrent to the typical peach, apricot and floral aromas of Albariño.

90pts Vinous– 2020 vintage

Brilliant straw. Mineral-tinged orange, pear and floral scents are complemented by a hint of quinine. Shows very good clarity and cut to the juicy citrus and orchard fruit flavors, which deepen on the back half. Lingers with strong, minerally persistence, leaving honeysuckle and orange notes behind.

90pts View from the Cellar

This magnum of the 2020 Nessa bottling of Albariño from Adegas Gran Vinum is the same wine as the regular-sized format that was released last year, but just given an additional year of bottle aging in the cellars prior to release. The wine today is drinking splendidly out of magnum, offering up scents of fresh lime, tart orange, salty minerality, lemongrass and a topnote of dried flowers. On the palate the wine is bright, pure, medium-full and complex, with lovely mineral signature, bright acids and lovely length and grip on the well-balanced finish. Readers may recall that the regular-sized bottle last year was under screwcap and it is so nice to see the real wine out of magnum, as it is texturally so much more precise and suave under natural cork! Good juice.
