Pazo Torrado Albariño, Rías Baixas

Spain | 2019
(2 customer reviews)

£12.95 a bottle

Imagine a mixture of white and yellow peaches fully ripe and aromatic mixed in with shavings of dried apricots and fresh pineapple, all sprinkled with zest lime juice. Then bottle it! It’s got fruit but also this amazing acidity that totally refreshes. One of the best Albarino’s we’ve ever tasted and at this price, a bargain.

Origin

Rías Baixas is a region renowned for its Albariño wines, a varietal believed to have been introduced by Cistercian monks as early as the 12th century. Vineyards are found around the town of Cambados, on the shores of the Arousa estuary; a combination of alluvial soils, long dry summers, plentiful rainfall at other times of the year and cooling influences from the Atlantic Ocean mean grapes achieve the desired ripeness, but retain refreshing levels of acidity.

Producer

Pazo Torrado form part of the Terra de Asorei, a family of 8 growers in the Rías Baixas region. Vineyard cultivation spans 70 hectares and is focused entirely on Albariño production. Capacity can reach 1 million bottles a year; a medium sized producer (believe it or not!) where the emphasis is very much on quality.

Grape Variety

100% Albariño.

Harvested grapes are destemmed and crushed, before going through pneumatic pressing. The must is decanted and the clean juice extracted and fermented in stainless steel tanks. The wine is then filtered, racked, stabilized, sterile filtered and bottled.

Food Match

Wonderful as an aperitif if you like crisp wines but a great accompaniment for seafood, salade niçoise or crudité with a big bowl of humous.

    A burst of white peach, apricot and lemon zest hit me first, followed by more subtle notes of white flowers. Vibrant acidity makes for a dry, refreshing finish.

    We discovered this wine when we received a bottle as a gift at the same time that we saw Rick Stein’s Spanish programme. Now we love the wine and it is the only white that my wife will drink. Pazo is one of the best Albariño’s that we have tried.
