Pazo Torrado is made by Terra de Asorei, a group of 8 top Galician growers who between them have 70 hectares of prime Albariño vineyards.
The fruit for this wine (100% Albariño) comes from 15 year old vines grown at an altitude of 100 metres in the Salnés Valley of Rias Baixas an area that benefits from the moderating influence of the nearby Atlantic Ocean. Temperatures are cool and the rainfall moderate.
After picking, the grapes are crushed and gently pressed in a pneumatic press. The must is then allowed to settle for 24 hours before fermentation in temperature controlled stainless steel vats. The young wine is cold stabilised for a week prior to filtering and bottling.
Pale lemon yellow with hints of green, the nose is full of fresh apple aromas with notes of citrus and white flowers. The palate is dry with fresh, lively acidity underneath the gentle fruit flavours. The finish is long and persistent with excellent minerality.
