Winemaker Notes

Pazo Cilleiro Albarino has a lively pale gold color with greenish reflections. It is clean and balanced, with citric fruits and white fruit notes, with small white flower aromas. The taste mimics the nose – it is fresh, round and elegant on the palate, with a persistent, full, and refreshing finish.

Serve at 48-50° F. Enjoy it chilled on its own, or as a great accompaniment to all types of fish and shellfish in any cooking technique, sushi, fish paella, salads, and fruit salads.

Critical Acclaim

Decanter

Exuberant pear and peach nose. Palate is fresh, ripe and juicy with notes of peach and tinned fruit salad. Good complexity for a young wine at this price point.

Pazo Cilleiro, Spain
Pazo Cilleiro  Winery Image

The grapes are harvested from selected small vineyards around the winery in Salnés Valley, in the heart

of the Rías Baixas appellation (in Galicia - Northwestern Spain). The soil is granite, quite rich in quartz

but poor in organic components, with a sandy texture. The vines are 20 to 25 years old, grown mostly in

the traditional pergola system. All processes, from vineyard to winery, are focused to extract the

maximum quality of this highly concentrated grape.

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 Albariño; 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.

Bright and aromatic with distinctive floral and fruity characteristics, Albariño has enjoyed a surge in popularity and an increase in plantings over the last couple of decades. Thick skins allow it to withstand the humid conditions of its homeland, Rías Baixas, Spain, free of malady, and produce a weighty but fresh white. Somm Secret—Albariño claims dual citizenship in Spain and Portugal. Under the name Alvarinho, it thrives in Portugal’s northwestern Vinho Verde region, which predictably, borders part of Spain’s Rías Baixas.
