Mar de Vinas Albariño

"complex and deliciously refreshing albariño. The wine is built on tense acidity that firms the texture and drives the mineral notes through the end." —

90 Vinous Media Bright yellow. Mineral-tinged citrus and orchard fruits on the vibrant, spice-tinged nose. Silky and open-knit, offering juicy Meyer lemon and pear flavors that deepen slowly on the back half. Shows very good energy and a hint of fennel on a long, spicy finish that leaves a succulent pear nectar note behind.

90 International Wine Report Crisp and clean, this outstanding and bright Albariño starts off with a whiff of honeydew melon with lemon zest and kumquat. The palate has wonderful effervescence with bright pear, honeydew melon and starfruit flavors that sit alongside a lovely effervescence.

90 View from the Cellar The Albariño “Mar de Viñas” from Adegas Gran Vinum is one of their entry level wines and it is very well made for its price point. The 2017 version is bright and classy on the nose, offering up a vibrant blend of lime, tart pear, a touch of menthol, lovely minerality and a bit of ocean breeze in the upper register. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and focused, with zesty acids, a good core of fruit, fine mineral drive and a long, balanced and complex finish. This is very good Albariño! 2019-2030.

88 The Wine Enthusiast Prickly lemon and pineapple aromas come with modest minerality. This is zesty on the palate, with some body. Stone-fruit flavors of peach and nectarine finish full and healthy. This is a nice but basic Albariño to drink now.

90 International Wine Review An Albariño with rich and concentrated flavors of citrus and melon. Very dry and mineral-like with floral and earthy notes. Beautifully focused. Sourced from purchased and estate fruit of 10-40 year old vines.
