Wine Description

Pazo Torrado is 100% albariño grape. It is produced in the winery following the traditional winemaking procedures of the Salnés Valley, in the Rías Baixas area (Galicia). It is the albariño that we all know and love: fruity, tasty and palatable. “Pazo” is the name given to traditional Galician stately homes. The Pazo Torrado was built during the second half of the 17th century and, at the beginning of the 21st century, it was repurposed as the headquarters of the Rías Baixas Regulatory Council. It is located in the town of Cambados, where every summer since 1953 awards are bestowed on the finest albariño wines. This is our way of honouring the wine lovers and winemakers who carry this Galician wine in their hearts and who, through the Albariño Wine Festival, have made it international. 1953 comes in two formats: one of them typical of the Galician and European market, and the other more widespread in American and English-speaking countries.

Tasting Note

  • The Appearance

    Clean and bright. It has a lovely straw-lemon yellow colour with greenish glints.

  • The Nose

    Medium-high intensity. Dominated by citrus, flowery and fruity aromas (especially green apple). It is fresh, lively and fragant.

  • The Palate

    Fresh, fat and quite sweet. The citrus and stone fruit notes can also be noticed on the mouth.
