Directions to Pazo de Villarei
The Pazo of Villarei vineyards extend along the Salnés Valley, in the heart of the Denomination of Origin Rias Baixas. The banks of the River Umia provide a shallow and sandy soil, as well as a mild and humid Atlantic climate, which helps the maturation of the Albariño grape used in making the single varietal wines. This Winery,founded in 1993, brings out colour and freshness in its wines by using fine lees; a process that enriche the aromas of the grapes, producing an exclusive expression.
The total extension of the vineyards is 81 hectares. The vines are less than 20 years old, and divided in various plots located between the estuaries of Arosa and Pontevedra, on the banks or the River Umia, in order to maximize the maturation. The vineyards are located at altitudes between 100 and 300 m above sea level. An ideal micro-climate is created with a temperate and humid climate, combined with shallow and sandy soils.
The Albariño grape, within 220 listed varieties, is considered one of the most important indigenous varieties of Galicia. It is a variety that produces small bunches, of early maturing and medium vigour grapes. It has a yellow straw-like colour, which is, shiny, with green and gold reflections. It has floral and fruity aromas, which are considered fine and distinguished, and that pleasantly impress the palate, with average intensity, and medium long duration. Its taste is fresh and soft, with sufficient body and alcoholic content, balanced acidity, harmonious and comprehensive nuances. Its aftertaste is pleasant, elegant and complete.
