The winery Pazo San Mauro, located in the Denominación de Origen Rias Baixas, was acquired in 2003 by the Grupo Vinícola Marqués de Vargas. Since then, the new owners have invested heavily in both the restoration of its magnificent buildings and the construction of a new wine cellar, with the most advanced technologies for the finest production of wine. In this winery two white wines from the albariño grape are produced and all grapes are grown on the estate owned vineyards. Located in the northwestern corner of Spain, the Denomination of Origin “Rias Baixas” is made up of 5 very different geographical sub-zones. Although each of the sub-zones has its own peculiarities, they all have important factors in common, such as variety and similarity of soils. The Albariño is the axis of all its wines and is capable of producing the best Spanish whites, both young and fruity wines with an enviable acidity, and refined and complex wines aged in bottle. Other white varieties, such as Treixadura, Loureiro and Torrontés are also included in the elaboration of non-varietal wines. The Atlantic climate is characterized by mild temperatures and abundant rainfalls, yet enjoys hours of sunlight necessary for the maturing of the grapes. Read less

Lightly leesy on the nose with lovely, transparent citrus rind and pear tones accented with smoky, quartz notes and gentle green background notes. Nicely taut in the mouth with excellent clarity to the pear and mineral tones that drive through on the lean but flavorful finish. This exhibits lovely balance with all the fruit, mineral and structural components in harmony and real succulent length packed with salty mineral tones. This is a winner! 91pts

Peaches and apricot aromas with a hint of sweetness and some green apple grace the nose. It's still quite dry, with good steely texture and wooded flavors providing a complex palate that I would love to have with food.
