Pazo de Galegos Albarino 2010
from Rias Baixas, Spain
Pazo de Galegos is a wine that shows depth, balance and equilibrium. This fine Albariño doesn't express intense aromas or an aggressive attack of flavor so much as long, subtle flavors, which evolve and linger on the palate.
Albariños have a fresh, citrus, tangy character that makes them pair wonderfully with all kinds of shellfish and seafood. In Galicia, cockles, razor clams, oysters, clams, octopus and squid are common local dishes, all a great match for this wine. This wine also has the clean acidity necessary to allow it to pair well with some Thai, Vietnamese and Chinese dishes.
"Pazo de Galegos’ 2010 Albarino was fermented with native yeasts and went through partial malolactic fermentation. Fragrant lemon, floral, and mineral aromas inform the nose of this smooth-textured, round, ripe, and savory offering. Nicely proportioned and lengthy, this outstanding value will provide pleasure over the next 4 years."
