Only made in peak years. No wood aging but long storage 'sur lies' at a low temperature on stainless steel ensures this unique product from northwest Spain. Only comes onto the market after a minimum of 8-10 years. This 2014 was only bottled in April 2023 and was then bottle matured for a number of months and the 2014 is seen as the vintage with the best storage potential.

Voted the very best white wine in Spain. Bodegas Senorans is located in Vilanovina, in the valley of the Rio Salnes, east of Pontevedra. The domain was purchased in 1979 by Marisol Bueno (president of the Rias Consejo) and her husband Javier Mareque. A lot of money was invested in replanting the vineyards. Everything was cleared and replanted with Albarino grapes, which give such stunning results here. In 1989, they invested heavily again to completely renew the production resources and thus had access to the latest and most modern means of producing wine. The first harvest was in 1990. In 1992, the young and promising oenologist Ana Quintela was brought into the company and since then the wines have shown an annual upward trend in terms of quality. Pazo de Senorans is always the last to start the harvest. They harvest with a higher sugar content than the other Bodegas. This results in optimally and evenly ripe grapes with ultimately more aromas and flavors and less aggressive acids. Harvesting is done exclusively by hand (which is the only possible way because the vines are planted in pergola form). and then the grapes are also selected by hand. We work with lower returns than elsewhere to achieve more concentration. This is also the only way to age the wines, because although in Spain people only want to drink the Albariño young, this Pazo de Señorans has a very good aging potential.

Marisol Bueno, owner of Pazo de Señorans, is considered one of the most dynamic winegrowers of the Rias Baixas and is the architect of one of the best white wines from Spain. The Selección de Añada is only made in peak years. No wood aging but a long storage of no less than 34 months at a low temperature on stainless steel ensures this unique product from northwest Spain. Only comes to market after ~8 years. This wine is made from the oldest vines with very low yields. The grapes are only picked when they have reached their ideal ripeness. The grapes then ripen further on stainless steel at a low temperature and on its yeast cells (sur lies) for ~3 years. The aromatic components of the wine can fully develop in this way. The Pazo Senorans Selección de Añada can be imposed for 10 years without any problem and will then improve even further.

This must be the most beautiful thing that can be produced in Rias Baixas. A well-known wine fanatic described this wine as a hybrid between Riesling and Sancerre. A symbiosis of the positive elements of the two wines. Opulent fragrances that unfold in complexity and finesse. Flowers, citrus, hints of petroleum, exotic accents and, above all, depth. Juicy and grapy at first contact, broad in taste, density with a finish to die for.

Vineyard for 2014 Pazo de Senorans Seleccion de Anada

Pazo Señorans, de templo bodeguero a lugar de ensueño para eventos en Meis  (Pontevedra)

Pazo de Señorans is located in the wine region of Rias Baixas which is located in Galicia, all the northwest of Spain and north of Portugal. This area is famous for producing Spain's best white wines, Rias Baixas' Albariño. Like many regions in Galicia, the soil here is also completely made of granite. The top layer consists of sand, mainly crumbled granite particles. This ensures that there is perfect water drainage from the soils. At low yields, the granite soils also ensure a nice minerality in the grapes.

Bodegas Pazo de Señorans is located in Vilanovina, in the valley of the Rio Salnes, east of Pontevedra. The domain was bought in 1979 by Marisol Bueno (president of the Rias Consejo) and her husband Javier Mareque. A lot of money was invested at Pazo de Senorans in replanting the vineyards. Everything was harvested and replanted with Albarino grapes, which give such astonishing results here. The grape vines are planted 100% in pergola form, the authentic way of planting grapes in this region. That way, the grapes are protected from the rain. In 1989, a great deal of investment was made to completely renew the means of production, thus obtaining the latest and most modern means of producing wine.

The first harvest was in 1990. In 1992, the young and promising oenologist Ana Quintela was brought into the company and since then the wines have seen an annual increase in quality. Pazo de Señorans is always the last to start the harvest. They harvest with a higher sugar content than the other Bodegas. All this results in optimally and evenly ripe grapes with ultimately more aromas and flavors and less aggressive acids. Harvest is done only by hand, which is a result of the Pergola plantation and then the grapes are also selected by hand.

Pazo de Senorans works with lower yields than other bogegas and this is purely meant that the wines can get more concentration and taste and this is also the only way to let the wines age, because although in Spain the Albariño only wants to be young drinking the Pazo de Señorans has a very nice aging potential.
In addition to the Pazo Senorans, the Pazo Senorans Selección de Añada is also produced: this wine is made from the oldest vines with very low yields. The grapes are only picked when they have reached their ideal ripeness. The grapes then further ripen on low-temperature stainless steel and on its yeast cells (sur lies) for 3 years. The aromatic components of the wine can fully develop in this way. The Pazo Senroans Selección de Añada can be imposed for 10 years without any problem and will improve even further. The work sur lies is also an important part of vinification in the ordinary Pazo de Señorans.
 
The wines of Pazo Senorans have a clear, light yellow-green color and a pure scent of tropical fruit. These influences are also reflected in the taste. The wine is wonderfully fresh and due to the good ripeness of the fruit, the wine even seems slightly sultry, in other words, mouth filling. The finish is long, intense and complex.

It is not without reason that Ferran Adrià (formerly El Bulli) has chosen this wine as one of his 'open wines', the Pazo Senorans, for his new restaurant 'Tickets' in Barcelona.
