Damn.  This looks good.

James Suckling:  "Creamy, ripe and peachy with considerable sustance and a rather supple acidity for Rias Baixas, but also good length. Drink now." Jul 2017

Wine Spectator: Designated Top 100 Wine of 2017, #35 Rank. "This big white is round and polished, with good weight and solid acidity behind the pear, blanched almond and white tea flavors. Ginger and briny notes give this a savory character. A muscular style. Drink now through 2022." Sep 2017

Robert Parker, Jr.'s Wine Advocate: "Unluckily, I missed the 2015 vintage and now have tasted the 2016 Albariño from Pazo de Señorans. It wants to showcase the varietal character of the grape in the Salnés with grapes mostly from sandy soils. It's bottled unoaked and without malolactic after four months in contact with the lees. The nose is clean, elegant and subtle, mixing aromas of white flowers with sensations of freshly cut grass, citric hints and a balsamic touch. The palate has pungent flavors, good depth—vertical and delineated—with some minerality and a dry finish. A very good textbook Salnés. Drink date: 2017 - 2020." Aug 2017

Winery:  "Bright straw yellow with greenish reflections. High intensity and distinct varietal character. Friendly mouthfeel, with smooth edges and well-defined volume until the finish."
