Pazos de Lusco
The latest winery to join the Gonzalez Byass family of wine, Pazos de Lusco is an artisanal Rías Baixas producer crafting elegant and expressive Albariño wines. Located just 2 kilometres from the Portuguese border in the sub-region of Condado de Tea, the wines are characteristic of this inland region, typically richer and fuller than their coastal counterparts. At the heart of the estate lies the majestic manor house, known as Pazo Piñeiro, which dates back to the 16th century. Surrounding the Pazo are 5 hectares of vineyards, with vines trained in the traditional Pergola system; on high trellises to maximize sun exposure and increase air circulation to maintain perfectly healthy bunches of grapes.
Meaning ‘sunset’ in the local Galician dialect, Lusco is a vibrant, bright, and relatively full-bodied Albariño. It has a powerful nose with aromas of fresh herbs, tropical fruits and floral tones. Fresh and complex on the palate, the wine is unctuous, soft and refined.
