      Tasting Notes
      Now converted into a winery and event centre the mansion of Pazo de Senorans which dates back to the 16th century is a magnificent example of those ancestral Galician houses built in the countryside with all the charm and stateliness of bygone eras. Marisol Bueno and Javier Mareque bought this estate in 1979. It already had vineyards planted with the Albariño grape variety. The estate covers 14 hectares of which 8.5 are planted with Albariño vines in siliceous granitic and decomposed soils. Marisol Bueno is the true pioneer and force of this young appellation. Through her work the DO was created in 1988 quality thresholds were introduced and the region began to receive wider worldwide recognition. Today the property is one of the few remaining family owned estates and remains quite small in order to maintain a rigorous level of quality.

      Very popular choice with all our staff. Aromas of nectarine, fresh figs,zest of orange and white flowers. Dry, and zesty with a mineral backbone, with a long finish and good length.

      A delicious alternative to Sauvignon Blanc, light bodied and refreshing with real zip. A wine to savour with shellfish and seafood of all kinds.

      "Pazo de Senorans is considered one of the handful of top estates in Rias-Baixas and has consistently produced some of the best Albarinos that money can buy. Their old-vine cuvées are especially good. This is a less-expensive cuvée that is 100% Albarino, aged four months in stainless-steel tanks. What tends to separate Pazo de Senorans from the herd is the fact that the yields are relatively modest at 25-30 hectoliters per hectare, and the estate has some of the older vines in the region, all planted in slate and gravel.

      This crisp, elegant 2016 Albarino offers up notes of apricot, honeysuckle and a touch of peach. The flavour profile then moves toward tropical fruits like mango, but never loses that wonderful floral intensity. It’s medium-bodied and shows beautiful purity, crisp acids and a zesty, very fresh, lively finish with a hint of minerality. Drink over the next 1-2 years. The palate has pungent flavors, good depth—vertical and delineated—with some minerality and a dry finish. A very good textbook Salnés.
