Product Description

The grapes for this Albariño come from selected small vineyards around the winery, in Salnés Valley, in the heart of the Rías Baixas appellation (in Galicia - Northwestern Spain). The soil is granite, quite rich in quartz but poor in organic components, with a sandy texture. The vines are 20 to 25 years old, grown mostly in the traditional pergola system. All processes, from vineyard to winery, are focused to extract the maximum quality of this highly concentrated grape. The grapes are hand-harvested, hand-selection and hand-sorted, then destemmed and undergo 14 days of fermentation in stainless steel tanks. The wine then spends 4 to 5 months in the tanks for a natural evolution to take place, with a further 3 months’ time in the bottle before coming to market. Unlike many other Rías Baixas wines, Pazo Cilleiro does not undergo malolactic fermentation. Therefore, the wine keeps its acidity, yet is balanced by the concentrated fruit for a complex, sophisticated white wine with great mouthfeel and better ageing potential.

Serve chilled on its own, or as a great accompaniment to any kind of shellfish, light seafood, Sushi, Fish Paella or soft and creamy cheeses.
