Winemaker's Notes:

100% Albarino

Pazo Barrantes has a full nose with developed apricot and peachy notes mixed with ripe apple. It has a well-balanced palate; the acidity is crisp without being sharp. Fruits are soft and ripe with a dominant apricot character. The wine has excellent mouthfeel as well as noteworthy purity. It will evolve gracefully over the next years. Pairs well with all types of seafood, white fish, and soft and delicate cheeses.

About Pazo de Barrantes:

In the heart of the Salnés valley in the Rías Baixas, the Creixell family project continues, with a further 12 hectares of vineyard — the Pazo de Barrantes Estate — and a winery in its center that carries the Estate's name. The imposing 16th century manor house, the family home, shares the same values as the Rioja Estate and offers since its origins in 1991 the finest wines possible, while always maintaining true albariño character through the use of the latest technology. Pazo de Barrantes continues to consolidate itself as the leading, quality winery of the Rias Baixas.
