Pazo Barrantes has been the Creixell’s family home since the 15th century, where Albariño has been grown for generations. Owned by the infamous Marques de Murrieta in Rioja. It was not until 1982 when the vineyards were replanted, and the winery was built. Located in the Salnés Valley, the 12 hectares of vines are grown on a high trellis system, protecting them from rot and encouraging ripening.
Pale straw yellow in colour. The nose is expressive and complex with intense aromas of ripe stone fruit, blossom and bay leaves, reflecting the maritime influences of Rias Baixas. The palate is fresh and full-bodied, presenting structure and excellent acidity. An enjoyable finish of delicate floral and white fruit notes.
Food matches: Try pairing with grilled scallops, croquettes and shrimp.
