2011 Pazo De Lusco Zios Albarino Rias Baixas
"Intense, yet clean fragrances of tropical white fruit make up the bouquet. On the palate, it is refreshing and crisp with grassy notes. A well-balanced wine with a rounded mouthfeel and lingering finish of slight, pleasant bitterness.
Ten hectares of vineyards located throughout the As Neves area of Rias Baixas near Galicia in northwestern Spain are dedicated to the production of this wine. A combination of bush vines and the Pergola training system render a low planting density of 2500 vines/hectare. The soil is deep and fairly acidic with decomposed granite that allows for excellent drainage, a vital benefit for this area of excessive rainfall. Although not certified organic, Pazos de Lusco does all it can to respect the environment in its viticultural practices." -Importer
