Winemaker Notes

With its pale straw yellow, the 2018 Pazo Barrantes shows an expressive and clear nose with intense aromas from pear, fruit salad, acacia blossom and bay. All of this under the maritime influence of Rias Baixas. In the palate, it is a savory, fresh and full-bodied wine with a pleasant finish from floral hints and juicy white fruit.

Pairs beautifully with grilled queen scallop over truffled potatoes and cavia, mille-feuille filled with smoked eel, white asparagus pudding, white shrimp with mint, marinated sardine, grapefuit jam and blood orange.

This is very creamy and beautiful with crushed apples and pears. Lemons. Really tangy. Full body. I really like the combination of dry fruit and zingy acidity. Wonderful example.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2018 Albariño from a year that was wet until July, followed by a warm and dry summer that balanced the year, when they started harvesting on the 20th of September, more or less normal dates. The wine feels fresher and cooler than the 2017, like an upgraded version of the 2016, with more body and structure but keeping very good acidity. This was kept with the lees for two months. It feels young and tender, a little reductive right now, so it might need to be decanted if consumed early. It should come into a subtler profile with a little more time in bottle. I've always said that good Albariño is better in its second, third or fourth year in bottle, and this is no exception. While I like the clout of the 2017, I admire the subtleness and freshness of this 2018. Rating: 91+

Wine & Spirits

 Citrus and salt come together in this savory albariño from the family estate of the Condes de Creixell the current count, Vicente Dalmau CebriánSagarriga, also owns Marqués de Murrieta in Rioja. This wine is a classical albariño, from its pale pear and lime flavors to its smoky salt water–taffy scents and creamy richness. Its mineral intensity will mellow with age, or in the company of pulpo gallego.

Wine Spectator

This white has weight and focus. Lime, quince and blanched almond flavors mingle over tangy acidity, accented by herbal and briny notes. Firm and fresh. Drink now through 2024.

Super-young and fresh: this could be a classic tasting note for Albariño. But this is a fine example of where it’s worth buying another bottle. By all means enjoy one now for its vivid freshness, but keep the other for a year or three and see how it becomes richer and more complex. Which you prefer is very personal. Pazo Barrantes is owned by the Marqués de Murrieta.

Pazo de Barrantes, Spain
Pazo de Barrantes Winery Image

Pazo de Barrantes is part of the Marqués de Murrieta family, one of the founding fathers of modern Spanish winemaking. The winery has been associated to the Counts of Creixell since the beginning of the 20th century, and the property in the hands of the family since 1511. Over the years, the Count of Creixell´s family has given its own personality to every wine produced at the winery. In the 1990s, the Galician property turned into an estate designed specifically for the albariño growing, the great and noble local grape variety. This enabled the family to join all the efforts to offer careful and precise winemaking in the heart of the Salnés Valley.

The Pazo de Barrantes estate is located in the Salnés Valley of Rías Baixas and is the largest single estate in the valley. The property is close to the Galician coast in the western part of Spain, just north of Portugal. The winery is settled near the southern tip of the Rioja Alta in the middle of the beautiful Ygay Estate, a unique 300 hectare vineyard that guarantees complete control over the grape source of the wines and is the key to the quality and style of Marqués de Murrieta wines
