Pazo Pondal

Ferran Centelles

Tasting: Albariño

Although it is slightly reductive, this wine it deserves some attention in the glass. Do give it some air and it will give you more open aromas of green fruits and stones. Do not worry about its more restrained character as it will gain in complexity.

John Radford

Tasting: Albariño

Straw. Warm, ripe, mature, perfumed, elegant. Lovely fruit upfront, fabulous greengage fruit on the mid, fades a bit on the finish, but excellent.

Sarah Jane Evans MW

Tasting: Albariño

Typically Albariño on the nose, with a fine combination of leesy creaminess, white peaches, and lime zest. In the mouth the impression is fresh: well balanced and restrained between fresh acidity, mineral clarity, and orange and lemon.
