The Vineyard & Winery
The vineyard works with a pergola system to work the vines and the picking is all done by hand. All of the fruit comes from their own 29 ha of vineyard and around 160 Growers and 500 specially selected micro pockets. Every one of these are rigorously inspected regularly to ensure quality. This additional level of maintenance ensures that the complexity of the wine lives up to the standard that Pazo Señorans has become known for.
The pressing is followed by a natural fermentation in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature of 18°C which helps to retain the buoyant fruit flavours. The wine is then matured on the lees for 4 months to help develop the texture and spice on the soon to be wine.
