Description:

With this 2014 vintage, Lagar de Fornelos presents a new wine: Pazo de Seoane. We wanted to make a wine that would be typical of our area, typical of O Rosal. It reflects the winemaking tradition of our surroundings, where Albariño grapes are often blended with other local grape varieties, such as Treixadura, Caiño Blanco and Loureiro —as opposed to the 100% Albariños, such as our Lagar de Cervera. The Loureiro grapes bring new aromas of bay leaves, floral nuances and a subtle, elegant flavor. The grapes are exclusively from the O Rosal district, which enjoys a particular micro-climate with higher average temperatures than the rest of the province. 

Tasting Notes:

Straw-colored with greenish-yellow hues; very bright. The wine stands out for its clean floral and citrus aromas, with a predominance of lemon rind and ripe white fruit, such as apples and quince, enhanced by herbal hints. Fresh and savory on the palate, with pleasant, buttery sensations. A complex, well-balanced wine with a powerful and pleasant lingering aftertaste. The Pazo de Seoane O Rosal 2014 is ideal to enjoy with any aperitif and the perfect companion to a wide variety of dishes.
