Pazo Barrantes has a well-balanced palate; the acidity is crisp without being sharp. Fruits are soft and ripe with a dominant apricot character. The wine has excellent mouthfeel as well as noteworthy purity.
Few can hide their delight when they try this; amazing life and freshness, with dry summer fruits framed with assertive lemon/ brine acidity. Benchmark Spanish Albariņo.

Dan Murphy's Wine Panel
Spice, apple, subtle pineapple, apricot, some dried herb. There's a lovely rush of flavour to the front palate - spicy, waxy and tropical accented - then something of a dip - feathery almost - then a rise on the finish with plenty of spicy length. Gentle creamy texture and richness allied with subtlety and finesse. Convincing.

Marques de Murrieta owns an estate in Rias Baixas where Albarino is produced. The 2010 Pazo Barrantes Albarino is a fragrant white that spent several months on its lees. Aromas and flavours of jasmine, lemon, and tropical notes are displayed on a smooth-textured platform featuring lively acidity, plenty of spice notes, and excellent balance. This lengthy effort will deliver pleasure for the next 3-4 years.

The Wine Advocate
...mouthwatering in every sense of the word and simply hard to resist; a real bargain for the quality of wine on offer, never mind the inherent sexiness of it being Spanish.
