91 Points Wine Enthusiast 

Honey and tropical fruit aromas show a hint of orange blossom, while this lees-aged Albariño is round and mildly citrusy in feel. Apple, melon and a touch of vanilla make for a fine flavor profile. On the finish, this tastes of honeydew and green banana

Additional Details

The Pazos de Lusco winery, within the Rias Baixas DO, is located in the municipality of Salvaterra do Miño, in the province of Pontevedra. The Rias Baixas DO in Galicia in north-west Spain is a small wine-growing region that covers a mere 400 hectares. Pazos de Lusco is found in the Condado de Tea production area in the south of the region, 40km from the coast. Conditions in the area are perfect for grapes to ripen; moderate rainfall, low winter temperatures and sunny summers, while the soil is poor in organic material, sandy, with high mineral content and excellent drainage, producing riper and less acidic wines than in other areas closer to the coast.

Pazos de Lusco Albariño is brimming with fruit, harmonious and well balanced. Production is limited, with natural methods being used from the selecting and picking of the grapes and traditional wine making methods during the vinification including fermentation by natural yeasts.

The name of the winery is typically Galician. A pazo is a traditional Galician ancestral home usually in the country side. Lusco is an idiomatic Galician word that defines the magical moment between dusk and nightfall when the sun is going down.

WINEMAKING:

Hand harvested bunch by bunch, fermented with its natural yeasts after 6 hours maceration and gentle pressing to get the highest varietal flavors without greenness. Aging is carried out in French and American oak barrels and lasts from 4 to 18 months in underground cellars where temperature and humidity values stay naturally stable.

Pazo de Lusco is a 100% Albariño produced using native yeasts and aged for 4 months on lees.

Pazos de Lusco wines are produced following the ancient tradition in order to obtain all the potential from each and every pago, respecting at maximum the character of the indigenous varieties and their soils.
