Winemaker's Notes

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.

Critical Acclaim

"There's a certainty and directness to this wine, the flavors having matured into a bold, old-fashioned style of coastal wine, hinting at salt spray, fresh cream and lobster stock. It's concentrated, savory and extremely long. Great with percebes or other rich shellfish."
