NUEVA ERA DE PAZO BARRANTES
The bucolic atmosphere of Pazo de Barrantes and its 12 hectares estate is reflected in the development of the grape enriching it with different essences. From these grapes we obtain an albariño with an unique personality and a strong varietal character. Pazo Barrantes shows an excellent ageing potential.

On the palate, it shows an elegant freshness and it surprises with its gastronomic versatility. Pazo Barrantes Albariño is the perfect balance between longevity and inmediate enjoyment.
The grapes used to elaborate the wine come from Pazo de Barrantes estate, with 12 hectares divided into 8 different plots and located around the winery. The soils of the estate are granitic, with sand on the surface and the average age of the vineyard is 30 years.
