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.

“This is one of four bottlings of Albariño from Adegas Gran Vinum, three of which have just become available from the 2021 vintage (the top-of-the-line “Selección Especial” bottling will presumably be released a bit later). This wine and the “Mar de Viñas” and “Esencia Diviña” bottlings will all surely improve with time, as proved both by the track records of earlier vintages and also by the improvement they currently show after being aerated. This is a medium-bodied rendition of Albariño with excellent balance between fruit and acidity, recalling just-ripe peaches with a squeeze of citrus acidity and a pleasant tinge of bitterness in the finish. Delicious — as usual.”
