Winemaker Notes

Pronounced varietal personality, with deep terroir character and a nice finesse. Crisp, ripe apple, pear and peach notes that mingle together with white floral aromas. Highly aromatic on the palate and nicely balanced, with a delicate mineral aftertaste and an elegant finish.

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

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The clean and harmonious 2016 Albariño shows elegant aromas of white fruit and flowers intermixed with some floral sensations, hints of fennel and pollen. The palate is very balanced, medium-bodied with a nice mouthfeel, intense flavors and good acidity. 182,000 bottles produced.

Pazo San Mauro Winery Image
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.

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.
