Winemaker's Notes:

Tasting Notes: Brilliant, pale yellow straw with greenish hues. The nose has an intense varietal character, ripe apples, peaches, citrus and floral notes with all the splendid characteristics of the Albarino grape. Very fruity and full on the palate, fresh citrus and tropical fruits dominate, well balanced, good body and acidity with a lingering floral finish. Oz Clarke writes: nice mix of lemon and mineral flavours and bright zesty quality. A very attractive direct style. Percentage Grape: Pazo San Mauro, a Single Estate, are located in Porto-Salvatierra de Mino overlooking the Rio Mino which forms the border between Spain and Portugal. They are in the most southerly and mountainous subzone, Condado de Tea, within the DO Rias Baixas, in the province of Pontevedra. A winding road leads to the winery that is surrounded by an almost hermetic forest of Atlantic pines. The Atlantic environment of this area is the natural habitat of the Albarino, practically the only conditions in which it may be grown. Growing Climate: Their vineyards, rising up in wide terraces from the Rio Mino, form a large natural south-facing amphitheatre enjoying an exceptional microclimate in this most southern and sunniest area, allowing a more complete and early maturity. Date of Harvest: 13-20 Sept 2007 Type of Harvest: Carefully ripened and meticulously selected grapes were harvested by hand and collected in 20 kg boxes from 13th-20th September 2007, all from estate-owned vineyards. Vinification Method: After de-stalking and a light pressing, fermentation takes place for 15 days in stainless-steel tanks at a controlled temperature of 17-18 deg.C Date of Bottling: 2008/02/15 Alcohol Percentage: 12.5 % PH: 3,20 Total Acidity: 6,50 Cork Material: natural
