"In the heart of the Salnés valley in the Rías Baixas, the Creixell family project continues, with a further 12 hectares of vineyard — the Pazo de Barrantes Estate — and a winery in its center that carries the Estate's name. The imposing 16th century manor house, the family home, shares the same values as the Rioja Estate and offers since its origins in 1991 the finest wines possible, while always maintaining true albariño character through the use of the latest technology. Pazo de Barrantes continues to consolidate itself as the leading, quality winery of the Rias Baixas." - Winery Notes

Pazo Barrantes Albarino 2015 Reviews

"I caught the 2015 Albariño from Pazo de Barrantes just before bottling, but it had already been blended and clarified, and was in stainless steel to be bottled in the next few weeks. There is a slight hint of carbonic gas. In 2015, which they consider an almost perfect harvest, they have decided to release the wine slightly earlier; some 25 year ago it was released in September and most recently in June, and this 2015 will be released end of April/May; so they took that into consideration when they aged the wine to make it approachable early. 2015 was a warm, early harvest that also helped in that direction. The nose is very expressive with grassy aromas and very balsamic, mixing bay leaf with waxy apples, a little minty, with hints of quince and some white pepper. The palate is quite unctuous, in their style, perhaps amplified by the exuberance of the year, while keeping the freshness and acidity. For comparison's sake I also sampled the 2012, which could be a similar vintage; it is evolving really nicely and gaining complexity. 95,000 bottles should be filled in April 2016. The Rías Baixas wines from Rioja's Marqués de Murrieta have turned into some of the most reliable wines of the appellation." - 90, Wine Advocate

Pazo Barrantes Albarino 2015 Tasting Notes

"The wine is straw yellow in color, with greenish nuances, bright and well-defined. It is a voluptuous white wine with surprising bottle longevity preserving its citrus, fruity and floral fragrances of grapefruits, pears and white flowers. In the mouth it reveals its elegant personality, freshness and varietal character with a pleasant and well-defined texture. All through the mouth it displays a succulent feeling, adding a certain muscular structure balanced by a smooth-as-silk acidity with a persistent and lengthy finish." - Winery Notes
