Editorial Reviews for Bodega Castro Martin Family Estate Selection, Albarino 'Sobre Lias'
This has a lovely nose, all swathed in a gentle florality with soft apricot, plum, and tangerine aromas that show a little candied almond note. This is focused and fairly precise in the mouth with big acids lending a classic seashell note on the palate, and even a whisper of tannins supporting slightly herb toned green plum, lime and melon fruit. This finishes with impressive clarity and good length showing very pure lemon flavors and firm minerality. 89pts
Made with selected grapes from prime vineyard locations, our 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 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.
A clean and intensly fresh wine that exhibits all the typical characteristics of the Albariño grape variety. Ripe and aromatic, with overtones of peach, melon and honey, offset by a crisp tangy acidity that helps to balance the rich fruit flavours. A well-rounded wine with a long, mellow, honeyed finish.
