About This Wine:
The influence of Marisol Bueno and Javier Mareque on the founding and development of the DO Rías-Baixas and its primary variety Albariño can be traced back to their purchase, in 1979, of an ancient 16th century country estate, its kiwi orchards and old-vine Albariño vineyards. Located in the town of Meis, within the sub-zone of Val do Salnes, Pazo Señorans lies in close proximity to the sea on acidic, sandy soils created by the natural decomposition of the granitic bedrock below. Early on they recognized the potential of Albariño and were instrumental in the creation of the DO just a decade after they arrived in Meis. Mostly grown on pergolas, their Albariño, is hand harvested into small crates in September and quickly transported to the winery to be crushed and pressed. Separate vinifications are conducted by plot in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. To retain freshness, malolactic fermentation is blocked and the wine is allowed to age on its lees for at least four months with frequent bâtonnage. Bottled early each year following the harvest, it is an example of the fresh, crisp and vibrant style that has defined the region. A complete manor house with a wide array of outbuildings including a chapel and the largest surviving hórreo (the distinct, elevated barn typical to Galicia) in the DO. Testament to the turbulence of having a noble title in a land of fiercely independent farmers the estate preserves an ancient “panic room” which the family could retreat to during turbulent times. Near the panic room is the original winery on the property consisting a stone lagar and stone fermentation tank dating to the founding of the estate. Surrounding the Pazo are 18.5 hectares of vines but the estate purchases fruit from their neighbors as well which is fairly typical in Rias-Baixas with its myriad of minuscule garden-vineyards.

Ratings & Reviews

91 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The flagship 2019 Albariño is young, fresh and fruit-driven, quite similar from vintage to vintage, a little reductive when so young, but with varietal notes of white fruit and flowers, freshly cut grass and a citrus touch. The palate is harmonious and tender, with good volume and freshness, finishing dry. This stays in tank with lees for four to five months before bottling. 250,000 bottles produced, most of the production. It's bottled in six different lots throughout the year." - Luis Gutiérrez (11th Jun 2020)
