We live in a golden age of Spanish wines, and Albariño, from the rugged Atlantic coasts of Galicia, is very much leading the charge. In fact, it’s arguably Spain’s finest white wine, and undoubtedly the perfect accompaniment to the fresh fish and seafood of its home region. Bodega Pazo de Villarei makes this fabulous wine from 20-year-old vines grown at high altitude, which helps maximize the flavor whilst locking in freshness. The nose is reminiscent of waxy lemon rind and crunchy apple. In the mouth it is quite a ripe and forward style, mouth-filling citrus and peach, with a clean finish. Perfect porch pounder on a hot summer day, pair with grilled seafood and veggies.
The vineyards of Pazo do Villarei cling to the slopes of the Val do Salnés, between Arousa and Pontevedra, chosen long ago by the Clets for their unbeatable location for wine growing. Abadia do Seixo is made in the classic-modern style of Rías Baixas, 100% Albariño cool-fermented in stainless steel.
Bracing, rejuvinating style, with intense mouthwatering pink grapefruit, orange peel and sea salt flavors. Fresh, tangy and zingy - classic Galicia.
