"This albario offers its fresh coastal richness with the kind of naked joy delivered in a freshly shucked scallop. That clean depth of flavor carries the sunny feel of the Atlantic coast in summer. The wine spends three months on the lees, in tank, developing white flower notes but no toastiness or excess weight. Its a fresh, bold beauty."

" Apple and other white fruit aromas come with a touch of lanolin, while this is fresh yet rounded on the palate. Nice flavors of golden apple, white stone fruits and sea salt finish with good length. Drink this rock-solid Albario through 2021. Europvin USA. M.S."

Tasting Notes
Pale golden color, with green hue. Complex aromas of green apples, grassy, citrus and tropical fruits; white flowers show up in a second layer. Mouth filling sensation with crispy acidity. Elegant, balanced and pleasant aftertaste with a salty after taste

The Wine
Etiqueta Verde, or Green Label, is the entry-level offering from Granbazn. The grapes are hand-harvested and de-stemmed before undergoing a cool pre-fermentation maceration which helps to lock in and amplify aromas and structure. Etiqueta Verde is made with a combination of free-run juice and lightly pressed juice. It is aged on the lees for no less than four months before bottling. This is a classic Salns Valley style albario. Dry, very floral, with crisp acidity, and elegant salty aftertaste.

Great Albarino at a reasonable price.

"This is a great expression of the Albarino grape at a modest price point. If you want to get a good idea of what an Albarino tastes like, try this one for under 17 dollars. Pale yellow in the glass . Notes of stonefruit; maybe some peach and lemon. Great acidity and a hint of salinity. Refreshing!"
