    Winemaker Notes

    Tropical fruit aromas of lime peel mingle with an appealing smokiness. Fruity, soft, full and round. Very well-balanced with a dry, crisp finish. Ideal with and seafood dish.

    Pazo San Mauro, Spain
    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.

    Known for bold reds, crisp whites and distinctive sparkling and fortified wines, Spain has embraced international varieties and wine styles while continuing to place primary emphasis on its own native grapes. Though the country’s climate is diverse, it is generally hot and dry. In the center of the country lies a vast, arid plateau known as the Meseta Central, characterized by extremely hot summers and frequent drought.

    Rioja is Spain’s best-known region, where earthy, age-worthy reds are made from Tempranillo and Garnacha (Grenache). Rioja also produces rich, nutty whites from the local Viura grape.

    Ribera del Duero is gaining ground with its single varietal Tempranillo wines, recognized for their concentration of fruit and opulence. Priorat, a sub-region of Catalonia, specializes in bold, full-bodied red blends of Garnacha (Grenache), Cariñena (Carignan), and often Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon. Catalonia is also home to Cava, a sparkling wine made in the traditional method but from indigenous varieties. In the cool, damp northwest region of Galicia, refreshing white Albariño and Verdejo dominate.

    Sherry, Spain’s famous fortified wine, is produced in a wide range of styles from dry to lusciously sweet at the country’s southern tip in Jerez.

    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.
