Founded in 1981, Granbazan was the original quality pioneer in the region, the first estate to invest in modern winemaking equipment and trained enologists, the first to use clean, free run juice and cool fermentation to realize the world class potential of the Albariño grape. Today, Granbazan remains ahead of the chasing pack, with its privileged terroir of granite soils planted with mature vines close to the sea, and its continuing commitment to excellence. “Etiqueta Ambar" is 100% free run juice from the oldest vines on the estate, and is the Granbazan signature wine, the most elegant and complete Albariño we have yet tasted.

94 POINTS, JAMES SUCKLING:
A really pronounced nose introduces very fresh aromas. There’s a garden worth of herbs, such as mint and Thai basil, to add a further dimension to the petrichor, flinty and citrusy character. Full-bodied with intense phenolics that give this a real sense of structure, and the acidity is hardly shy either! Delicious albarino to drink now.
