2017 Pazo de Señorans Albariño Rias Baixas

SKU #1369823 93 points Jeb Dunnuck

 The 2017 Albariño is a rich, medium to full-bodied white that has some serious oomph in its white flowers, stone fruits, and salty, marine-influenced aromas and flavors. Incredibly pure, perfectly balanced, and with a great texture, it’s a naked, raw expression of Albariño that readers should snatch up. (JD)  (4/2019)

92 points James Suckling

 The complex white-peach, gooseberry and floral nose is very enticing and just beginning to open up. Rich, yet sleek and elegant with spot-on balance of fruit, creaminess from yeast contact and lemon-lime acidity. Where is that pan-fried fish!  (8/2018)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The regular 2017 Albariño is sold early with primary aromas and flavors and good structure that should allow it to age nicely in bottle. 2017 saw a very early harvest, low yields and concentrated wines. This was bottled without malolactic, after four to five months with the lees. This is young and fresh, clean and open, with aromas of white flowers and freshly cut grass complicated by hints of bay leaf. The palate is fresh and tasty, ending with a salty sensation. (LG) 90+ points.  (2/2019)

90 points Wine Spectator

 Peach, pear and quince flavors are accented by floral and briny notes in this generous white, with citrusy acidity keeping it focused and lively through the minerally finish. (TM)  (9/2018)

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! 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!
