Sparkling albariño wine made according the champenoise method. Vibrant and fresh, with fine, well-integrated bubbles.
The natural attributes and the aromatic richness of Salnés Valley albariño grape inspired us to produce a sparkling wine following the traditional champenoise method. After 10 years of work, during which our oenologist fine-tuned the process to the maximum, we are finally ready to present Brut 1953 Pazo Torrado. Along with other forward-thinking wineries, we are truly excited about the renovation of the albariño industry, and we hope this can incite a new era in the history of albariño. In 1953, in Cambados, the first Albariño Wine Festival was held. This triggered the selling and marketing of albariño wine, which had been carefully safeguarded up until then by the small, family wineries of the Salnés Valley. In 2015, when our winemaking fellowship began producing wine under the label Adegas Terra de Asorei, we decided to mark the occasion by selecting the very first grapes of the harvest, which, after 9 months of ageing in stacks, have now become the basis for this sparkling albariño.

This sparkling wine is quite intense on the nose and it is dominated by flowery aromas and notes of dry nuts.

Fresh and well-balanced on the mouth. Its bubble is highly integrated.
