Pazo Cilleiro Albariño 2019 (Rias Baixas, Spain) "...citrus, peach, white flowers..."

Regular price $156.00 $128.95 Sale

Selected small vineyards around the winery, in Salnes Valley, in the heart of the Rias Baixas appellation (in Galicia - Northwestern Spain). The soil is granite, quite rich in quartz but poor in organic components, with a sandy texture. The vines are 20 to 25 years old, grown mostly in the traditional pergola system. All processes, from vineyard to winery, are focused to extract the maximum quality of this highly concentrated grape.

"Exuberant pear and peach nose. Palate is fresh, ripe and juicy with notes of peach and tinned fruit salad. Good complexity for a young wine at this price point." - 90 Points DWWA 2020

"Pazo Cilleiro Albarino has a lively golden yellow color, with green reflections. It is clean and balanced, with citric fruits and white fruit notes, with small white flower aromas. The taste mimics the nose – it is fresh, round and elegant on the palate, with a persistent, refreshing finish." -Winemaker
