One of the best Albariños of all time. The winery skipped two years in order to release the first vintage of Pazo Barrantes, produced in a completely reconsidered way, with perfect bottle agedness. The 35-year-old vines grow on soil with a sandy top layer and granite subsoil. It was given two months of ageing on lees in steel tanks, then 85% of the wine was aged for another 7 months in tanks, while the remaining 15% was aged in acacia barrels.
It's an elegant, sophisticated and interesting wine. Aromas of peach compote mix with salted lemons, and the interplay of sweeter notes with distinct saltiness makes it an unforgettable experience. The texture of the wine is thick and velvety, completely seamless. An endless finish. A great wine.
It was included in Wine Spectator's current TOP 100 list, and Robert Parker's Wine Advocate gave it 94 points.
