Pazo Galegos, pale yellow, with apple aromas and hints of pear, with subtle anise and herbal notes adding complexity. On the palate fleshy and broad but quickly tightens up persistent and expressive; well balanced. Its finish is delicate and long. Pazo Galegos is fermented with its own natural yeast at cool temperatures undergoing maceration (skins in contact with its juice) for 6 hours prior to fermentation.
The Pazo de Galegos estate is located in the interior of Rias Baixas (most producers are on the coast) giving more consistent weather. The 2007 Albariño was sourced from 26-year-old vines and raised in stainless steel with partial malolactic fermentation. Light gold-colored, it has an attractive perfume of lemon, orange peel, and mineral. Creamy, round, and balanced, it has very good acidity and a long, crisp finish. Drink it over the next 1-2 years.
Light green-gold. Ripe lime and pear on the nose, with subtle anise and herbal notes adding complexity. Enters the mouth fleshy and broad but quickly tightens up, offering taut lime and orchard fruit flavors with a nervy chalky undertone. Blends depth with briskness and finishes with smooth orange and yellow plum flavors. Impressively complex wine with the power to stand up to richer foods.
