Producer Note
Founded by the Mendez Family in 2002, the Pazo do Mar winery is dedicated to the
production of Galician wine from the native varieties of Albariño, Treixadura, Godello
and Mencia. The vineyards are situated 150 metres above sea level on slate and
granite soils and are influenced by the Atlantic Ocean. This family-run estate aspires
to find the perfect balance between traditional values and an innovative and
modern approach to winemaking, resulting in a collection of stunning wines with
freshness and personality.


Vintage
2020 was a classic Ribeiro vintage. Generous rainfall during the winter replenished
the soil’s water reserves. The weather in spring was mild, creating good conditions for
budding and flowering. The summer was warm, but not excessively so, allowing the
physiological development of the vine to progress normally. However, in midSeptember, the weather changed, resulting in a rapid harvest to retain the quality of
the fruit. The 2020 wines show refreshing acidity and clear, elegant aromatic
characters.


Vineyard
The aromatic Treixadura variety is a local variety of the Ribeiro region. This slowripening white variety can be sensitive, so site selection is paramount. The Pazo do
Mar Treixadura vineyard is testament to this: the grapes for this wine come from the
Torre do Olivar vineyard, a viticultural site which dates back to the Middle Ages. In
2002, the vineyard was replanted with the current Treixadura vines. The vines are
planted at a spacing of 1.5 x 2.5 metres on wide trellises system to avoid too much
canopy shade, allowing the grapes to reach good maturity levels. Guyot pruning
takes place, which compensates for this slightly vigorous variety, keeping yields
under control to produce concentrated juice. The vineyard sits at an elevation of 150
metres above sea level on a meander of the Miño River, which has a moderating
influence on the vines, as they have been oriented to encourage maximise exposure
to the sun. The soil is sedimentary with slate components, which retains the warmth
of the day and radiates it at night, as Treixadura needs warm soils for optimum
quality. The grapes are hand-harvested.


Winemaking
The grapes were cold-macerated in stainless steel tanks prior to being gently
pressed. Slow fermentation took place at controlled temperatures of 16°C lasting one
month with fine lees imparting texture. Maturation took place in stainless steel tanks
for three months. The wine was gently fined and bottled without any influence of oak,
showcasing the aromatic characteristics of the Treixadura variety.


Tasting Note
A clean, aromatic and full-flavoured wine with pure aromas of white orchard fruit
and lively citrus notes. Elegant, with a creamy texture and a lovely crisp, fruity finish.
