Pazo Barrantes 2018
Pazo Barrantes es un vino blanco intenso y expresivo con un estilo que bebe de la misma filosofía de Marqués de Murrieta. Un blanco con elegancia y frescura, fruto de un excelente y meticuloso trabajo sobre lías durante dos o tres meses que lo hacen muy untuoso y rico en boca. Esto también le deparará una magnífica evolución en botella.

The 2018 Albariño from a year that was wet until July, followed by a warm and dry summer that balanced the year, when they started harvesting on the 20th of September, more or less normal dates. The wine feels fresher and cooler than the 2017, like an upgraded version of the 2016, with more body and structure but keeping very good acidity. This was kept with the lees for two months. It feels young and tender, a little reductive right now, so it might need to be decanted if consumed early. It should come into a subtler profile with a little more time in bottle. I've always said that good Albariño is better in its second, third or fourth year in bottle, and this is no exception. While I like the clout of the 2017, I admire the subtleness and freshness of this 2018. 140,000 bottles produced. - Luis Gutiérrez.
This is very creamy and beautiful with crushed apples and pears. Lemons. Really tangy. Full body. I really like the combination of dry fruit and zingy acidity. Wonderful example. Drink now.
Super-young and fresh: this could be a classic tasting note for Albariño. But this is a fine example of where it’s worth buying another bottle. By all means enjoy one now for its vivid freshness, but keep the other for a year or three and see how it becomes richer and more complex. Which you prefer is very personal.
