From the region of Rias Baixas of Galicia in the westernmost corner of Spain comes this distinguished wine, considered to be one of the significant undiscovered white wines of the world. Rumored to be a descendant of the Riesling grape, and brought to Spain by German missionaries in the Middle Ages, Albariño is one of the few Spanish grape varieties produced as a varietal and indicated as such on labels.

Founded by the Mendez Family in 2002 the Pazo do Mar winery is dedicated to the production of Galician wine from native varieties Albariño, Treixadura, Torrontés and Godello Mencia.

Coral do Mar Albarino is produced from a single vineyard site 150m above sea level on granite and sandy soils, which impart minerality and a fresher style to the wine. The vines are trained on a trellis which gives the grapes more aeration, leading to an optimum maturation of the berries and less acidity in the wine. Only 2% of Albariño is planted this way due to higher costs for cultivation and reduced yields.

Harvested by hand, the grapes were then cold macerated to extract varietal character and body, prior to a soft pressing and fermentation in stainless steel vats. The finished wine was kept in contact with its lees for two months and malolactic fermentation was prevented.
