Tras los Muros 2017
Tras los Muros es la nueva creación de Pazo de Señoráns. Elaborado bajo la dirección de la enóloga Berta García, este blanco de Rias Baixas cuenta con una crianza de 6 meses en barrica de roble. En nariz ofrece fruta blanca (pera de agua), fruta de hueso (nectarina) y toque cítrico (lima). Cuando se abre se aprecian notas mentoladas y de regaliz. En boca es crujiente, con un amargor perfecto y la barrica perfectamente integrada. Perfecto para beber desde ahora para los más impacientes, aunque su guarda promete sorprender.

One of the three new Albariño bottlings is the 2017 Tras los Muros, an oak-aged young Albariño from the vineyards with the property, from vines yielding 6.9 kilos per hectare (low for the region). It fermented and matured in 225-liter French oak barrels, which they say have a low percentage of new oak. I think probably any percentage of new oak and 225-liter barrels are too invasive for the aromatic and delicate profile of Albariño. This example comes through as creamy and oaky, and I don't really want to smell oak in my Albariño, well, I don't want to smell it in any wine, really, but I think in this case, even a little bit is too much and goes against the purity and the marine expression of the Salnés Valley. They had the wine in barrel for six months and did daily bâtonnage at first and then just weekly toward the end of the élevage. It spent a further six months in stainless steel before bottling. Maybe this will improve in bottle. Even though the wine is quite good, right now it's also a question mark. 2,750 bottles were filled in September 2018.
Attractive and warming nose of Christmas spices and sandalwood, alongside vivid black cherry and blackberry fruit. Dense and structured palate with layered fruit and warm spice notes, as well as subtle coffee bean and liquorice notes.
