Bodegas Castro Martin A2O Albarino, Rías Baixas, Galicia, Spain

Regular price £14.99

Complex, mineral Albariño of some complexity, perfect for seafood

Bodegas Castro Martin stands proudly as a family business still managed on a day-to-day basis by the descendants of its original founder, Domingo Martin. The Martin family had been making wine for generations, albeit on a comparatively small scale, until 1981 when Domingo decided to build a larger, more high-tech facility in the shape of the current bodega. It was the first in the region to be equipped with stainless steel tanks and produced its first vintage some six years before the denomination of Rias Baixas was even created.

Tasting Note: This wine has a distinct salty minerality accompanied by pure, clean aromas of peaches, melons, citrus fruit and honey. A vibrant acidity on the palate is balanced by flavours of white peach and the wine has a long finish.
