It's hard to believe Pazo de Señorans have
been making wine for a mere 28 years given that they are now
considered one of the finest producers in Spain.
Anna, the winemaker, is fastidious in her approach, which could
not be more pared back or simple. Having worked with the same
growers over many years, there are no secrets to the success, it is
all about the quality of the fruit. Ensuring that pristine grapes
are achieved is key in this warm, humid climate. Such is the
pervasive nature of the humid, briny air that the raised pergolas
for training the grapes to ensure air movement are hewn from solid
granite! Pressing is followed by a natural fermentation in
stainless steel which helps to retain the exuberant fruit
character, while the following ageing on lees helps develop texture
and spice on the resulting wines.
The important thing about Señorans, it has the ability to age
and is probably at its best 18-36 months after harvest. The
Seleccion Añada is unique being aged on its lees in small steel
tanks for up to 36 months or so and demonstrates above all the
ageing potential of Albariño, and Señorans in particular, that we
think no other producer can mimic.
