Closure:
The wines here grow in pure granitic sands, and are 100% Albariño. Castro Martín is still owned and run by the founding family; the Bodega's history can be traced back as far as 1887. The philosophy at Castro Martín is simple: to make the best quality wine possible at the most competitive price. The team are constantly re-examining their work, improving and including innovative techniques where possible, whilst still respecting the tradition of the region.

This 'cuvee' is bottled unfiltered which adds (retains) a layer of energy, an extra dash of vibrancy and texture.

Beautiful savoury pear, with yellowed straw and apple cider on the nose, and CM's trademark smooth-fruited journey in the mouth. Almost certainly the most savoury CM yet, it is a little richer than usual, but the full-fruitedness is textural rather than fruity as such, with apple-skin fruit tannins tucking everything in and the lees ageing for savoury mouthfeel. Pear-apple 'two fruits' plus nectar florals and super texture, hmmm ... it's a dead-set beaut!
