Winemaker's Notes:

"Always a candidate for Albarino of the year, the 2005 Pazo de Senorans does not disappoint. The wine is produced from low yielding vines on slate and gravel and is tank fermented and aged on its fine lees with battonage. Light gold-colored, it offers up a refined nose of mineral, petrol, and pit fruits reminiscent of a top-flight Alsace Riesling. Bone dry and crisp, the wine offers intense flavors with superb balance and length. Drink this classy effort over the next 12-18 months with a variety of seafoods."

About Pazo de Senorans:

Pazo de Señorans is located in the Salnes region of the Rias-Biaxas in northwest Spain. It would not be an exageration to say that winemaker Señora Mariol Bueno's tireless efforts in promoting the region resulted in Rias-Baixas' status as a D.O., which was finally granted in 1992. Through her work, the region gained international noteriety for producing a wonderful and intriguing white wine from the indigenous Albariño grape variety.
