Pazo das Bruxas Albarino 2019

Rueda, Castilla-Leon, SpainThe Pazo das Bruxas albariño opens with a medium yellow colour and a symphony of aromas led by a mix of lemon-lime, green apple, and lemongrass. More of the fresh fruit is on the palate, balanced by a bitter underscore and a racy mineral finish. It is an intense version of albariño. The Pazo das Bruxas stands for the folklore and nature of Galicia. A long time ago, Galician witches who lived in old country houses (Pazos) connected with nature through their dances and spells, hoping to influence the harvest for good. It is another European white that should hold your interest throughout a Westcoast seafood dinner. The albariño come primarily from the cool, humid O Rosal subzone of Rias Baixas, where the grapes grow on pergolas to get them into the wind where they can stay dry and rot-free. A stainless steel fermentation keeps the fruit fresh.Tasted: 10 February 2022Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
