User Reviews for Pazos de Lusco Albariño Rías Baixas Zios

Winemaker's Notes:

The wine is made from a selection of 20-year-old Albariño vineyards in the subdistrict of Condado do Tea with a yield not exceeding 7,000 kg per hectare. The vineyard soils of decomposed granite are deep and fairly acidic and drain well despite the area's rather high rainfall. The vines are gobelet, wire-trained, and trellised. The grapes are hand-picked during harvest and carried in small crates for manual selection on the sorting table. The 100% Albariño grapes undergo cold maceration for 8 hours at 8 ºC, followed by cold settling for 24 hours at 8ºC , alcoholic fermentation for 25 days at 14ºC, and malolactic fermentation. The wine undergoes earth and amicrobic filtration.

Tasting Notes:

The wine is big and fruity, perhaps more so than most Albariños. Not that this is distinctly sweet, but there are lots of fruits throughout the wine: peach, orange, tangerine, apples, bananas, along with watermelon and even something like applesauce.
