Pazo Barrantes Albarino 2012

Pazo Barrantes Albarino 750ML 2012        
Sku: 51446

Pazo Barrantes, a wine that captures the subtle flavor and freshness of albarino, comes from 30 acres of premium vineyards, the largest single estate in Salnes Valley, Rias Baixas D.O. of Galicia, Spain. The family behind the well-known Rioja estate Marques de Murrieta produces Pazo Barrantes and founded the winery in 1991 to make the highest quality albarino. The wine’s true albarino character is a direct reflection of the Creixell family’s core values of quality and estate-owned vineyards, paired with a modern winemaking approach and the latest technology.

 Vinous 90 points (Sep 2013)
Pale, green-tinged yellow. Intense, mineral-laced aromas of candied citrus fruits, quince and honeysuckle. Dry and precise, offering incisive lemon and bitter quinine flavors and a deeper note of pear skin. Closes silky and long, with nervy acidity adding lift and finishing bite.
 Wine Advocate 90 points (Jan 2015)
I give the edge to 2012 over 2013, even though proprietor Vicente Cebrian talks about their 2012 Albarino as a wine from a complicated vintage. It has some waxy aromas, apples, peaches and some balsamic notes, with good delineation, a nice, balanced palate, concentration and very clean acidity, showing good freshness. I also had the chance to taste some older vintages, with an impressive 1994, still alive with sharp acidity, somehow younger than a 2007. I feel this 2012 is more balanced, with less malic acidity, but it will not be as longed lived. 150,000 bottles produced.

Food pairing
Pazo Barrantes pairs well with any kind of seafood, white fish, soft cheeses and rice dishes. We recommend serving the wine at 12º to 14º C.
