      Tasting Notes and Description
      Made with selected grapes from prime vineyard locations, the Family Estate wine exhibits many fine, elegant qualities. With a distinct salty minerality on the nose, and an array of pure, clean, limpid white fruit (pear, peach and a touch of apricot) aromas. The palate almost shimmers with tang and vibrancy, and although it has a steely precision, it is balanced by fruit with a peachy pear-like quality and backed by a vivid streak of lemon and mineral acidity.

      In the case of Albariño, that has intense fruit flavours and a zesty natural acidity; there are some very food obvious matches that come to mind. For example, it is absolutely no coincidence that the region of Galicia, where the Albariño grape finds its natural home, is also the base for a large proportion of the Spanish fishing fleet, and there can be no greater pleasure than washing down a plate of fresh oysters or indeed any shellfish with a chilled glass of the local grape. And please don’t forget of course, that Albariño can be enjoyed on its own as a refreshing aperitif…

      Bodegas Castro Martin is a family-owned business dedicated to making Albariño of the highest possible quality. The current building was constructed in 1981 and inaugurated with the ’82 vintage. Built by Domingo Martin-Morales the bodega is now managed by his daughter Angela Martin.

      The Rias Baixas DO is situated in Galicia in Northern Spain overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. Most of the vineyard holdings are very small and make up a patchwork of sites throughout the region. Many are very small nothing more than the size of a back garden and they use distinctive overhead pergola systems to train the vines which all have to be tended by hand.

      The Albarino grape is ideal here as it copes well with the damp climate and needs the cool Atlantic air to retain its signature freshness and aromatics.

      "Ultra-ripe pineapple on the nose and throughout. I LOVE it. Lovely texture and soft, juicy, super-concentrated fruits with electric acidity and mineral tension. I swore in my tasting note at this point. Glorious. There's herbs too, following up on the finish. Elegance and bright vivacious charm. This is it. Right now. Tuck in."
