Winemaker Notes

Pronounced varietal personality, with notes of fresh fruit, citrus and floral aromas. Highly aromatic and nicely balanced, with an interesting, tasty and elegant aftertaste.

Excellent accompaniment to grilled crayfish, crabs and all kinds of seafood, white fish, sushi and rice patties.

Wine & Spirits
Part of the Marqués de Vargas group from Rioja, Pazo San Mauro is located in the Condado do Tea zone, with vineyards on terraces directly above the Minho River. Its 2014 is linear and mineral, built on a penetrating and sharp acidity. Austere and shy, it takes a few minutes in the glass for the fruit to emerge in apricot and pear scents over a creamy and refreshing texture. For grilled prawns.

Image of winery
Pazo San Mauro is situated on the southern banks of the river Mino. The property slants upward in wide terraces covering approximately 300,000 square meters, creating a natural amphitheather. On the top ride reside 16th century buildings of the Paxo and chapel constructed in 1582. For hundreds of years pilgrims had come here to presents their wood or wax votive offerings on the day of San Mauro. On the opposite side of the river, rising high above the green vineyard landscape is the medieval Portuguese tower of "Lapel". The sloping hillsides and roky terrain provide protection from the wind and provides and optimum growing environment for the vines. In this location, the varietals Albarino, Treixadura, Torrontes and Loueiro flourish is the strong sunlight. The old winery of Pazo San Mauro is partially buried and faces the south side of the large courtyard of the Pazo. The winery is equipped with a pneumatic press, stainless steel barrels for controlled fermentation and cooling system to provide the needed elements for successful fermentation.

Rias Baixas

View all wine

Named after the rías, or estuarine inlets, that flow as far as 20 miles inland, Rías Baixas is an Atlantic coastal region with a cool and wet maritime climate. The entire region claims soil based on granite bedrock, but the inlets create five subregions of slightly different growing environments for its prized white grape, Albariño.

Val do Salnés on the west coast is said to be the birthplace of the Albariño grape; it is the coolest and wettest of all of the regions. Having been named as the original subregion, today it has the most area under vine and largest number of wineries.

Ribeira do Ulla in the north and inland along the Ulla River is the newest to be included. It is actually the birthplace of the Padrón pepper!

Soutomaior is the smallest region and is tucked up in the hills at the end of the inlet called Ria de Vigo. Its soils are light and sandy over granite.

O Rosal and Condado do Tea are the farthest south in Rías Baixas and their vineyards actually cover the northern slopes of the Miño River, facing the Vinho Verde region in Portugal on its southern bank.

Albariño gives this region its fame and covers 90% of the area under vine. Caiño blanco, Treixadura and Loureira as well as occasionally Torrontés and Godello are permitted in small amounts in blends with Albariño. Red grapes are not very popular but Mencía, Espadeiro and Caiño Tinto are permitted and grown.

Albarino

View all wine

Bright and aromatic with distinctive floral and fruity characteristics, Albariño has enjoyed a surge in popularity over the last couple of decades. This grape claims dual citizenship of both Spain (in the Rías Baixas region) and Portugal, where it is widely planted in the northwest and is known as Alvarinho. In recent years, plantings have increased throughout California.

In the Glass

Bursting with rich, ripe flavor, Albariño can show flavors of orange blossom, grapefruit, lime, apple, pear, melon, and white peach. It may also have notes of almond paste, fresh cut grass, jasmine, or geranium. The best examples boast zingy acidity and often a briny, mineral quality. It is typically fermented in stainless steel to preserve the purity of its fruity flavors, though oak-aged examples can provide a weighty yet refreshing alternative to Chardonnay with surprising potential for aging. Due to Albariño’s thick skins and large number of pips, it often shows a bit of bitterness on the palate.

Perfect Pairings

Albariño loves seafood, and can be paired with a variety of marine delicacies. Its distinctive waxy texture and lemony acidity make it a perfect pairing with fresh sardines, oysters, octopus, or squid.

Sommelier Secret

Albariño is considered an aromatic variety, and actually shares many chemical compounds with Riesling, Gewürztraminer, and Muscat. If you enjoy these elegantly perfumed whites, chances are you’ll love Albariño.
