More specifically, the grapes are sourced from a vineyard at 300 metres of altitude close to the Atlantic coast. The average age of the vines, strategically planted in the lower course of a river, is 45 years. Soils are composed of "xabre", which is the Galician word for a type of decomposed granite.
This top-notch Spanish white wine from bodega Pazo de Señorans was crafted with the utmost care. The grapes were hand-harvested, transported to the cellar in little boxes, meticulously selected, macerated for a short time and vinified in stainless steel tanks.
After that, Pazo Señorans Selección de Añada 2012 was aged on its lees for 30 months in the tanks. Finally, it was aged for a minimum of 12 months in the bottle before its commercial release.
The quality of this Crianza white wine from Rías Baixas has been recognized with numerous distinctions and awards, as well as with consistently high scores from senior wine critics.
The wine Pazo Señorans Selección de Añada is medium yellow with golden and amber tinges.
Displaying a remarkable aromatic richness, this varietal Albariño goes far beyond the cliché of the tropical and yummy Albariño. Yes, there are hints of exotic fruit, but also dried apricots, quince, a hint of medlar and, most interestingly, some multi-layered mineral undertones and a salty, marine quality. This is deep, complex stuff.
This wine from Pazo de Señorans is opulent, textured and rich, but never weighty or flabby. Acidity, one of Albariño's strong points, gives the wine a wonderful tension and a tight, rock-solid structure. The palate suggests baked apples, cinnamon, citrus and white flowers. The texture is silky, and the wine has a long, exquisite finish with some remembrances of smoke, earth and wet stones.
