2010 Pazo de Señorans Albariño Rias Baixas

SKU #1088595 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2010 Albarino was aged in small stainless steel vats sur lie with batonnage for 4 months. Jasmine, mineral, lemon zest, and other citrus notes inform the nose of this multi-dimensional, already complex white. On the palate tropical flavors emerge adding to the wine’s pleasure quotient. Drink this superb effort over the next 3-4 years. As usual, Pazo de Senorans has made one of the finest Albarinos of the vintage.  (6/ 2011)

K&L Notes

Albarino is the perfect summer white, but its naturally crisp acidity and peachy citrus flavors make it enjoyable year-round as an aperitif or paired with a variety of foods, particularly shellfish and seafood. It hails from the Rias Baixas zone of Gallicia, on the northwest coast of Spain. Walk through any given fishing village along the 'rias' (fjords) in this beautiful, cool, maritime-influenced region and you will find fresh grilled 'pulpo' (octopus) vendors at every corner! In the 2010 Pazo de Senorans, a classic Albarino nose of white peach, citrus and mineral aromas gives way to a round middle palate with a long crisp finish. It's lovely on a warm afternoon as you enjoy the catch of the day, or seek it out at your local bistro to sip over a plate of hot, steaming mussels, grilled calamari, or...'pulpo' of course!
