Winemaker's Notes:

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.

About Pazo de Galegos:

Bodegas y Viñedos Pazo de Galegos was founded by Manuel García Gomez in 1989. Today they own 25 acres (10 Ha) of Albariño and Mencía grapes vines.

Pazo de Galegos is a distinct Albariño, revealing the true virtues of its unique terroir. The wines are fermented with the natural occurring yeasts from their own grapes. These Low yielding vines produce expressive concentrated wines. Pazo de Galegos wines undergo partial malolactic fermentation, to achieve greater freshness and aromatic expression.
