Winemaker's Notes:

Pazo de Galegos is mineral-driven with aromas of lime, pink grapefruit and pear. Intense overlay of chalk and herbs. Nervy and precise, offering pure citrus and floral flavors and notes of anise and fresh bay. Expands with air and finishes with excellent clarity and spicy persistence.
My Notes:

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.
