Intense, yet clean fragrances of tropical white fruit make up the bouquet. On the palate, it is refreshing and crisp with grassy notes. A well-balanced wine with a rounded mouthfeel and lingering finish of slight, pleasant bitterness.
The 4 hectares of vineyards dedicated to the production of this wine are located near Galicia throughout the As Neves area of Rias Baixas in northwestern Spain. Planted using the Pergola training system, the vines achieve a density of 2500 vines/hectare in soil that is deep and fairly acidic. Components of decomposed granite allow for excellent drainage, a vital benefit for this area of excessive rainfall. Although not certified organic, Pazos de Lusco does all it can to respect the environment in its viticultural practices.
This wine makes a perfect aperitif, but also is a great accompaniment to sushi and raw shellfish.
