The grapes with which it is made come from the Pazo Barrantes estate, of 12 hectares divided into 8 differentiated payments and located around the winery. The soils of the farm are granite type, with sand on the surface and the average age of the vineyard is 30 years.
After an exhaustive selection, the grapes are destemmed and pressed gently and slowly in a pneumatic press. The must is chosen by flotation to ensure greater aromatic purity and then ferments at 10oC in stainless steel tanks for approximately 60 days. After fermentation, it remains 2 months with the fine lees in the stainless steel tank.
7 months in stainless steel tank, 15% in acacia wood barrels and 16 months in bottle.
This new Pazo Barrantes 2019 surprises with a decidedly elegant and expressive nose; fine aromas of white stone fruit, citrus notes, balsamic nuances, acacia flower and bay leaf. Lively and fresh in the mouth, with a fluid texture and a balanced and long finish.
Roasted zamburiña on truffled liquid potato and Aquitaine caviar grains. Smoked eel millefeuille, foie gras and caramelized soda apple with onion mayonnaise and butter. Steamed cockles and lime.
