Best White Wine of the Year, Peñín 2020 Guide - 99 points

“For three years the family winery Pazo Señorans has flirted with being the best white wine of the year, always with its wine Pazo Señorans Selección de Añada, first in its 2007 vintage (Peñín Guide 2015 - 98 points), then with its 2008 (Guía Peñín Peñín 2017 - 98 points) and finally with his 2009 (Peñín Guide 2018 - 98 points). And they did it today with a wine that was a break not only in the Rías Baixas area, but also in the Spanish producing environment. Their Selección de Añada wine is a commitment to the aging of Galician whites, a wine capable of withstanding the challenge of time and of gaining expression on this journey. Today the Pontevedra winery has finally achieved this with its superb 2011 vintage, which shows soil, surroundings and, of course, a style that is already its own by acquired rights. This Pazo de Señorans has been an unmitigated love of interest for the tasting team, a wine that recalls the granite soils of its vineyards, where touches of laurel, lees and hydrocarbon are appreciated as the great whites of the world do. “

Decanter Platinum Medal – 97 Points

“Really expressive tropical fruit nose. Great mouthfeel with notes of pineapple, mango, lemon sherbet and a savoury, saline overlay. Exceptional intensity and length. Fabulous example of the ageing potential of the variety. Won't fall over any time soon.”

Zalto Denk-Art Bordeaux Glass

Due to further lockdowns in Austria we are experiencing extended delays with our Zalto orders.  

We are currently expecting our next delivery to arrive July/August 2021.

The Zalto Bordeaux glass is recommended for weightier style reds, probably our most widely used glass when tasting in house, this glass is great for many different wines. The large bowl helping aerate and soften tannins whilst accentuating the wine's depth and concentration. The Bordeaux glass is the ideal choice for Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Zinfandel, Bordeaux or Rhône style blends and many other red wines. Surprisingly, it is also the glass of choice for oaked Chardonnay, the shape of the bowl accentuating the balance of ripe fruits and oak.
