The leading producer in Rias Baixas widely recognised as one of Spain’s finest producers.
It has frequently won “Best White Wine” trophy at the Wines from Spain awards and regularly receives the highest score from TWA of all Albariños.
There are two wines, Pazo Senorans Albarino and the Seleccion Añada.
Former is generally sold as young wine in the year following harvest but, and this is the important thing about Señorans, it has the ability to age and is probably at its best 18-36 months after harvest.
The Seleccion Añada is unique being aged on its lees in small steel tanks for up to 36 months or so and demonstrates above all the ageing potential of Albariño, and Señorans in particular, that we think no other producer can mimic.
Continuing their search to demonstrate how well Albariño ages Señorans began, in 2011, to hold back some stock of the regular bottling so as to be able to release it some years later.
Frighteningly fashionable, Pazo de Señoráns is now seen as the very best Galician winery. Located at Vilanoviña, in the Pontevedra town of Meis, winery and vines alike benefit from a situation in one of Rías Baixas’ most prestigious wine-making sub-zones.
The vines are farmed at relatively low altitudes, not too far from the sea, with the soils influenced accordingly by sandy elements. Vinification is in stainless steel and bottling is early.
The result is that Pazo Senorans Albarino definitely is a wine of great aromatic harmony, with distinctive notes of late-season apples, fennel and a hint of verbena.
Pazo Senorans Albarino shows aromas of nectarine, fresh figs, orange zest and white flowers. Dry, citrus flavours and a mineral-driven finish, which expands and deepens on the tail end. Offering a satisfying balance of power and finesse.
