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
This distinctive blend is made up of five native varieties which flourish in the Pazo do Mar
vineyards in the heart of the Ribeiro region. The vines are planted at an elevation of 150
metres above sea level, where the soils are varied, but predominantly granitic which
retains the heat of the day and encourages the grapes to reach good maturity. The
climate is influenced by the Atlantic Ocean, which has a cooling effect, resulting in
grapes with good levels of natural acidity. The blend is made up of Treixadura, an
aromatic variety that brings lemony notes and creamy body to the blend; Torrontés,
another aromatic variety which imparts stone fruit notes with floral highlights; Albariño
lends citrus flavours and naturally fresh, zippy acidity; while a small proportion of
Loureriro offers refreshing citrus fruits and is low in alcohol and Godello offers mineral-rich
complexity.
Winemaking
Each variety was vinified separately. The hand-picked 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. The
wines were deftly blended, before being gently fined and bottled without any influence
of oak, showcasing the aromatic characteristics and purity of fruit in this distinctive
blend.
