Pazo de Señorans Seleccion de Añada # 2005
Pazo de Señorans, built in fourteenth century, is a great example of a traditional manor house in Galicia. In 1975, Javier Mareque and Marisol Bueno acquired the estate, which was planted with Albariño vines. They took up the challenge of producing their own wine, starting with the 1990 vintage. Today, its wines are renowned for their quality, the result of a careful grape selection and an exemplary vineyard management policy by Marisol Bueno, former president of the Rías Baixas regulatory body.

This expresses a unique depiction of Albariño with lees contact and age, offering complexity from a grape that so often is celebrated only for its tartness and minerality. The aged character shows up in an apparent dessication of the fruit flavors: lemons morph into dried lemons; mangoes become dried mango chips; yellow apples are now bruised, dried, and concentrated.
