Pazo Señorans, Albarino


This is a serious white wine, which happens to be made from Albarino.

It is textural, fresh, vibrant and engaging with a beautiful array of stone-fruit flavours, minerality and a saline kick that really makes your mouth water. It's one of the top tier Albarinos and we reckon it's excellent value to boot.

This wine is aged for a minimum of 5 months on its fine lees - the best bits of the grape skins - which give it a lovely tuxture, focus and clarity. The estate itself has roots dating back to the sixteenth century and the current owner was the chair of the regional DO and was part of the original drive to push Albarino quality higher (rather than just to make more volume) and used the Pazo Señorans winery to assist in his argument. You'll agree, like everyone else did...

The grapes are grown in granitic decomposed soils, that are really poor quality, high in acid and excellent for draining. The roots for these vines are very deep, which assist them in combating winds, rain and hail which can all punctuate the growing season.  

Without extremes of temperatures, the Atlantic influence on these vineyards is really telling. Cooling breezes in the hot summer months and the retention of heat through the winter, this region seems especially suited to the Albarino grape. It is naturally lower in acidity than many other white varieties and prone to over-ripeness; the cool help it retain freshness while the Spanish sunshine ripens the grapes fully.

The sea then imparts (sometimes) a genuinely magic mineral touch which manifests itself as salinity in the grapes and wines, taking them from seaside quaffing bottles to serious culinary partners on a different level.

Amazing service from the get go!
I emailed Chris looking for wine recommendations for a birthday gift. Got a really speedy, helpful reply and not only that but he hand delivered it on time to the birthday girl wishing her a happy birthday. Absolutely bowled over by the service. Cannot recommend highly enough.

Could not recommend The Allotment enough. The selection is fantastic and each wine that I've drank from them has been utterly phenomenal. Delivery was no hassle and I had the wine at my door in 2 days. Couldn't have asked for a better experience.

A great experience ordering from The Allotment Wine Company. A wide variety of wines to try something new and at good prices with super quick delivery! Really convenient too as opposed to trying to find parking!

Delicious and interesting range of wines delivered promptly to my door. Not far off that lovely feeling of coming back laden from a good wine store but without any of the traffic or the worry of breaking the wine en route (very impressive travel wrap).
