Winemaker Notes

#35 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2017

On the palate, there is medium-high intensity combined with a balance of acidity which gives the wine great structure that improves in the glass.

Critical Acclaim

WS 91
Wine Spectator
This big white is round and polished, with good weight and solid acidity behind the pear, blanched almond and white tea flavors. Ginger and briny notes give this a savory character. A muscular style. Drink now through 2022.
RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
It's bottled unoaked and without malolactic after four months in contact with the lees. The nose is clean, elegant and subtle, mixing aromas of white flowers with sensations of freshly cut grass, citric hints and a balsamic touch. The palate has pungent flavors, good depth—vertical and delineated—with some minerality and a dry finish. A very good textbook Salnés.

Pazo de Senorans, Spain
Pazo de Senorans  Winery Image

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.

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.
