Paco & Lola - Rias Baixas Paco & Lola comes from 500 sun-kissed acres of vineyards in Meano (Pontevedra) where the Rosalia de Castro Winery is situated in an area considered to be the cradle of Albarino wine. In the heartof the Salnes Valley, this special area of northwest Spain is making someof the country s most interesting white wines. This valley, inhabited for thousands of years by the Celts, Phoenicians and Romans, naturally favors wine growing. The star variety of the valley is Albarino, which according to legend was introduced in the 12th century by Benedictine monks from central Europe. Today the Salnes Valley forms part of the famous Rias Baixas Denomination of Origin. The Salnes Valley has unique climatic characteristics that make this special place unlike any other part of the world and contribute to create a unique terroir. Good rainfall and small temperature variations are combined with sandy loam soils of granite origin that are lightly acidic. It is this secret formula that helps create the valley’s famous wines. This coastal area has proven itself the perfect place to fully develop the potential of the Albarino variety s seductive aromas and flavors, thanks to fertile soils and a gentle climate where the vines grow fanned by cool Atlantic breezes.   PACO & LOLA, A DIVINE DUO ~ Why name a wine Paco & Lola? Why not? ~ Wine doesn’t have to be boring or serious. ~ Wine can be attractive, seductive, fresh and fun. ~ A wine like Paco & Lola, Spain’s most stylish white wine, can do things a little differently. KEY SELLING POINTS: ~ Estate grown fruit sourced from 494 acres in the heart of the Salnes valley in Galicia in north-west Spain. ~ Produced with grapes sourced from sustainably farmed vineyards. ~ 100% Albarino aged in stainless steel vats.

Crisp pear and clover honey on the note. This is fresh, bright and clean. Fresh squeezed pink grapefruit on the palate with a tropical undertones. More fresh squeezed citrus and a dollop of cream on the finish.

This smells quite ripe with a fairly neutral sweet nutmeat tone and candied pineapple fruit. A touch of trapped CO2 livens the palate, but this is rather flat and weighty with interesting if simple flavors that recall the candied tropical notes of the nose. The finish is short with a hint of mineral and a touch of heat. 83pts

Nice alternative to Pinot Grigio or Sauvignon Blanc. Nice citrus, passion fruit and works well with Thai.

Very nice, simple white. Very similar in taste to a California Sauvignon Blanc. Refreshingly crisp with hints of melon and citrus. Nice balance of acidity. Wonderfully paired with seafood, especially scallops.

This had tropics all over with lovely smell of fruits from home. Well balanced with notes of minerals. this had plenty of mango and other tropical fruits like pineapple (acidity!). Yum I like this! I paid $12 for a glass though >:( http://dionyshius.blogspot.com/2012/11/albarino-at-jakes.html

Killer albarino with citrus and a bone dry wash. Great with antipasto and/or fish.

Strahlendes Strohgelb mit grünen Reflexen. Das Aroma erinnert an frische Kräuter, Zitronenschale und grüne Äpfel. Am Gaumen frisch, bei vollem, gut strukturiertem Körper. Schöne Balance zwischen Frucht und lebendiger Säure.

Wine Tasting NotesStraw yellow color with hints of green in the rim. Clean and brilliant. Complex with outstanding aromatic intensity. Fine notes of fruit (citrus, green apples), herbaceous notes (basil) and floral base notes. Very fresh flavors balanced by lively acidity giving a crisp, attractive taste, good body and a pleasant aroma on the palate. A varietal character that is elegant and persistent. Gorgeous! Paco & Lola is the perfect duo for sushi, fish, seafood, tempura, pasta, risotto and white meats.
