Pazo Señorans, Albariño

“Rias Baixas” may not be easy to pronounce (it’s “ree-yassby-shass, BTW!), but this Albariñois all too easy to drink! Light in colour and big on aroma, the nose here is all fresh citrus fruits, white flowers and stony minerality. In the mouth it’s zesty, bone dry and minerally, meaning you’ll be back for more (and more, and more). Good thing this comes in magnum!
