Pazo Señorans, Albariño, Selección de Añada, Rias Baixas, Spain, 2011
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.
This single vineyard wine comes from 4 ha vineyard and vines that are over 45 years old and planted around the Los Bancales region.
The Seleccion Añada is unique for an Albariño in that it is aged on its lees in small steel tanks for up to 36 months or so. We think think this demonstrates above all the ageing potential of Albariño, and Señorans in particular, that we think no other producer can mimic. Aged in stainless steel on its lees for over 30 months.
No oak treatment
Straw yellow with green tints. Intense and very expressive. Immense volume and great body. A wine with great delicacy and goes against the grain in that it is ripe for lengthy storage.
