Winemaker's Notes:

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.

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.
