Pazo Pineiro is the highest expression of Albarino from Pazo de Lusco. It is named for the 25 year old vineyard that surrounds the estate in Condado do Tea. The yield is a mere two tons per acre and total production is less than 600 cases per year. The soil is fairly high in acidity and rich in decomposed granite. Grapes are hand picked and carried in small crates to the cellar where they are manually sorted and selected. After ten hours of cold maceration and twenty four hours of settling the grapes are crushed. Fermentation lasts for twenty five days and the resulting wine is aged, on the lees, for an additional ten months. There is no malolactic fermentation. The finished wine is clarified, cold stabilized, and lightly filtered before bottling.

Tasting notes
Pazo Pineiro has a pale gold color and an aroma of apple, citrus, and pear accented by minerals and flowers. On the palate the wine is richly textured with citrus, apples, mandarin oranges, and hints of herbs, all balanced by juicy acidity and a long, persistent finish.

Food pairing
This wine is perfect with raw shellfish, sushi, grilled seafood, and Asian foods. It also is a nice match to poultry and veal dishes or cream based pasta preparations.
