Rias Baixas

De druiven die worden gebruikt voor de Pazo Barrantes Albariño zijn afkomstig van het landgoed Pazo de Barrantes, bestaande uit 12 hectare verdeeld over 8 verschillende percelen en gelegen rond de wijnmakerij in de Salnés-vallei, het hart van Rías Baixas. De bodem van het landgoed is granietachtig, met zand aan de oppervlakte en de gemiddelde leeftijd van de wijngaard is 40 jaar.

James Suckling 95/100 Punten:

Focused, ripe, mineral and intense, with lemon rind, stones and sea salt. Very tense and integrated, with tangy, bright acidity chiseled to the round, textured palate. An exceptional, transparent yet serious albarino here. Irresistible now. Drink on release or hold.

Robert Parker The WineAdvocate 94/100 Punten:

The 2020 Gran Vino Albariño, the second vintage after the transformation, is a representation of their property, the eight pagos, or vineyards, they have in their 12 hectares of vineyards plus one hectare they rent. The grapes were destemmed and the must let to settle to ferment in stainless steel for 60 days, followed by two months with lees and seven months after being racked off the lees, then a small percentage was put in acacia wood barrels for a short time to search for more complexity, structure and depth. They found that acacia is a wood in harmony with Albariño, even when newer. The bottles were kept for a further 20 months before being released. It has 13.5% alcohol, a low pH (3.26) and notable acidity (7.2 grams of tartaric acid per liter of wine), and it has finesse and elegance. It's sharp, with great aromatic intensity, less explosive and balsamic than the previous year, a remarkable mid-palate and a long, clean and precise finish. 78,533 bottles and 1,596 magnums were produced. It was bottled in June 2021.

Pazo Barrantes is the Rías Baixas winery from Marqués de Murrieta, a property with 12 hectares of vineyards in eight separate plots in the Valle del Salnés, around the winery in Barrantes (Ribadumia), plus one hectare they rent from the archbishop. They did a complete transformation of the wines, which were absent from the market for two years so they could increase the élevage and offer wines that have more complexity and nuance. Production averages some 110,000 bottles.

2020 was a warm year with an early cycle, but the first half of August saw cooler temperatures and more rain, which delayed the harvest to more normal dates than they expected, the 10th of September. The grand vin released now is from 2018, a cooler and wetter season. The forecast was for a later harvest, but the warm weather in August and September pushed the harvest to the 20th of September, one week earlier than anticipated. They got healthy grapes with ideal balance between ripeness and acidity.
