Characteristics of Pazo Cilleiro
Pazo Cilleiro is a white from the D.O Rías Baixas produced by the winery Pazo Cilleiro, belonging to Bodegas Muriel. This winery is a monovarietal of the grape Albariño.
The winemaking process, just like the harvest and transport to the winery are performed by traditional methods.
For production, there are a few aspects that make Pazo Cilleiro different from the majority of other wines in the D.O Rías Baixas.
This is for example, the process called debourbage is performed for a long period of time and incuding a shorter maturing period for the wine with its lees.
At the last moment, Argentinean tannins of Malbec are added to the wine moments before being botted.
The winery Pazo Cilleiro is located in the municipal of Meis, in the Val do Salnés. This forms part of tone of the most recognised groups, Bodegas Muriel, who are already exporting to more than 40 countries.
The 2017 vintage has been distinguished by the excellent health of the vineyard and the intense heat. Winter and spring were warmer than normal, accelerating the growth cycle 15 days and which was prolonged during summer, bringing forward the date of the harvest to the end of August. The growth cycle went smoothly, with good flowering and no notable pests. In summer, the drought worsened and in August they began to see symptoms of dehydration in the bunches. However, rains at the beginning of September restored the balance of the vineyard.
The wines of this vintage are identified by having something more volume due to its warmth and great freshness. A vintage to enjoy young, or as it is the norm for great wines of the area, to save for a few years.

Rías Baixas wines would not be where they are today without the native Albariño grape variety. Although red wines are also produced in Rías Baixas, practically 100% of Rías Baixas wines are white. Among them, the vast majority of them are made with the Albariño grape. As well as young wines, fresh and aromatic, the region also makes wines aged in the barrels, complex wines with great personalities. Albariño wines can either be single varieties, or be part of a blend with other characteristic grapes of the region: Treixadura, Loureira Blanca and Godello.
