Pazo de Señorans is among the richest and most deeply flavored wines in every vintage, and yet it is just as consistently among the freshest and most impressively structured. The wine shows superb fruit like fresh white peaches and ripe mellons, along with a light floral aromatic note and citrus-like acidity in the finish.
The 2008 Albarino is sourced from the oldest vines in Rias Baixas, fermented in tank and aged on its lees with batonnage. Light gold-colored, it delivers an attractive nose of mineral, white peach, and lemon zest. Smooth textured on the palate, tropical flavors emerge along with lively acidity. This lengthy Albarino will drink well for another three years.
Pazo de Señorans is located in the Salnes region of the Rias-Biaxas in northwest Spain. It would not be an exageration to say that winemaker Señora Mariol Bueno's tireless efforts in promoting the region resulted in Rias-Baixas' status as a D.O., which was finally granted in 1992. Through her work, the region gained international noteriety for producing a wonderful and intriguing white wine from the indigenous Albariño grape variety.
