Fresh flavours of orange peel, pineapple and white flowers with a rich mouthfeel. Classic mineral Albariño.
Founded by the Mendez Family in 2002 the Pazo do Mar winery is dedicated to the production of Galician wine from native varieties Albariño, Treixadura, Godello and Mencia. The vineyards are situated 150 metres above sea level on slate and granite soils, and the climate and weather are influenced by the Atlantic Ocean. The modern winery is kitted out for producing high quality wines.
This wine is produced from a single vineyard site on granite and sandy soils, which impart minerality and a fresher style to the wine. The vines are trained on a trellis which gives the grapes more aeration, leading to an optimum maturation of the berries and less acidity in the wine. Only 2% of Albariño is planted this way due to higher costs for cultivation and reduced yields.
