Lagar de Cervera Pazo de Seoane 2021 750ml
60% Albariño grapes from our vineyards in O Rosal, supplemented with other native varieties: Caiño Blanco, Loureiro and Treixadura.
We started the harvest on 16 September at the Silvosa vineyard (O Rosal) and one day later at our Viñadeiro vineyard (O Salnés). After an initial selection of bunches in the field, we hand-picked the grapes in small boxes, which are transported refrigerated to the winery.
For the first time ever, the entire harvest passed through an optical sorting machine —the
first winery in Rías Baixas with this system— discarding grapes that did not meet our technicians’ strict parameters. After cooling and maceration,
the wine was pressed in an inert atmosphere with nitrogen to prevent oxidation. After racking, the clean must was fermented at 15oC. In this vintage, 50% of the Albariño wine underwent malolactic fermentation. Each variety is processed separately before the final blending prior to bottling. Until then, the wine rests with its fine lees, which are periodically stirred to keep them in suspension, thus adding complexity to the wine.
Very clean and bright, with greenish yellow colour and golden hues. The nose displays great intensity, with white flower aromas, especially jasmine, backed by elegant citrus and white fruit, such as pear and melon. Fresh, structured and balanced on the palate. Long aftertaste reminiscent of the grape varieties in the blend.
