Albariño Paco & Lola is the wine that put the wine cellar of Meaño (Pontevedra) on the map of Spanish white wines, founded in 2005 and a strong defender of respect for the environment since its inception. Made from the must flower of selected grapes from the best vineyards of the firm, planted in granitic soils of Franco-sandy composition, this Albariño triumphed from its first day in the market thanks to the transparency of its aromas and the simplicity of its interpretation . The flower must obtained from the first and light pressing of the destemmed grapes fermented in stainless steel tanks at a temperature of 16ºC for 21 days and was kept with its fine lees, without stirring, until stabilization, light filtering and subsequent bottling.
In sight it looks straw yellow with greenish hues, as corresponds to a young wine. Its brightness anticipates the energy it will give off on the palate and its visual cleanness advances the good aromatic definition that we will find when approaching the cup. In its nose of medium-high intensity, aromas of aromatic herbs intermingle with the delicate memories of white flowers. The fruits overflow our olfactory capacity: citrus fruit appears in the foreground, recalling the time to peel a grapefruit or a lemon, but soon sweeter tropical aromas appear that lead us to think of pineapples, mangoes and lychees. An unusual balsamic note rounds an amazing nose for a wine without aging. The palate is fresh, fatty and sweet, tremendously round thanks to the fantastic balance between ripe fruit and vibrant acidity. Wraps the palate of terribly pleasant sensations that last for several minutes in the memory. Albariño Paco & Lola shows the most friendly and cosmopolitan face of the Atlantic climate from the idyllic Val do Salnés enclave.

Albariño wines from Rias Baixas have become ever more popular in the UK over recent years, and this beauty from Paco & Lola is one of the best that I've tried. Fresh and zesty on the palate, it also has more subtlety of flavour that many of its competitors. Great as an aperitif in summer and as an accompaniment to fish dishes.by: Frederick Bamber (19/12/2016) - Vintage 2015
fresh & crisp
Easy drinking, enjoy this either with or without food. Having visited Rias Baixas some time ago & loving both the region & the wine, I think it difficult to find better value for money than this wine.by: Great wine at reasonable prices (06/08/2019) - Vintage 2018
Good Albariño at a reasonable price.
This wine is very good value from Vinissimus. A good all round Albariño! The service from Vinissimus is really quick bearing in mind the wine comes from Spainby: PLJ (22/08/2018) - Vintage 2017

Outstanding Albarino. I have tried a lot of Albarinos , trying to better previous ones each time. This one is my bench mark and has yet to be beaten.
