Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

The farm Pazo de Barrantes is located right in theValle del Salnés. In its centre, we can find a winery that bears its name, with the most true architectural style of ‘el pazo’, a Galician palace from the 16th century. The farm has twelve hectares of Albariño grape vineyards of the highest quality, planted on sandy, low-depth, somewhat acid soils. With a clear objective, it is the production of an Albariño wine worthy of an outstanding place among the best wines of Spain.

The winery Pazo de Barrantes is owned by the Murrieta family, which also owns the Marqués de Murrieta winery. The offer of wines from the combination of these two wineries is one of the most attractive ones in the Spanish wine scene.

Pazo Barrantes La Comtesse is a wine produced with Albariño from a 12 hectare vineyard of old vines, Pago Cacheiro, located on shallow, sandy soils.

The grapes are manually harvested and placed in 18 kg boxes. Once in the winery, the grapes are destemmed before entering the press. Here, with a soft pressing, they extract the must, which after a settling process will ferment in 3,000 litre vats made of French oak from Allier, of fine grain, for 60 days at a controlled temperature of 10ºC. Here, the wine remains 6 months in contact with its lees. Then, it is aged for 12 months in the vats and another 8 months in concrete deposits.

Pazo Barrantes La Comtesse is a creamy, deep and structured wine. On the nose, ripe fruit aromas stand out, with notes of white flowers and a final balsamic touch. In the mouth, it is unctuous and with volume, with a good balance between structure and freshness, and a very long and amiable finish.

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.
