" Granbazán was established in 1981 by the Otero family, but it was bought by Pedro Martínez Hernández, owner of Baigorri in Rioja, in 2017. The 14 ha (35 acres) of vineyards in Tremoedo, near Cambados, wrap around a striking, neoclassical château covered in bright blue tiles, which houses a partly sunken winery. This wine comes from south-eastern and eastern vineyards just one kilometre (half a mile) from the sea on sandy granite soils. 35-year-old pergola-trained vines with a range of Albariño clones are hand-picked, and for this particular wine they hand-select grapes that have a golden skin colour. The wine is made from free-run juice with 12 hours’ skin contact, which then undergoes spontaneous fermentation in stainless steel. Then it is aged on fine lees for eight months.
