He Paco & Lola It is a young, fresh, modern and… wine. folkloric The wine is very good, but where it really is 10 is in the design management. Its cañí name and its Spanish and olé format enter through the retina and leave no one indifferent.
Behind this unique product is the Rosalía de Castro Winery, in the privileged Valle del Salnés pontevedrés. The winery has approximately 200 hectares of Albariño grape vineyard with an average age of 20 years from the more than 400 members of this unique cooperative, one of the largest Galician. The winery, of very recent implantation, has modern facilities made available to the wine growers' experience.
The same modernity that characterizes its image, is pursued in the viticulture techniques employed, using environmentally friendly cultivation practices using a reasoned agriculture, halfway between environmental sustainability and farm profitability.
The original idea of the winery was to introduce the Rosalía de Castro (Albariño brother of Paco & Lola but with a more demure staging) in the national market and Paco & Lola, with its groundbreaking image destined to the international market, but its modern and casual design It had an important reception in Spain that forced us to rethink the export concept.
He color del Paco & Lola is pale yellow, bright, with greenish reflections.
In nose, it exhibits with freshness the main varietal referents, extensive fruit range (pineapple, citrus and green apple mainly), herbaceous notes (fennel, fresh grass and straw) and some floral note (jasmine), also exhibiting a pinch of minerality.
In the mouth It is fresh, creamy, pleasant and appreciable acidity. Medium finish where the weight of the fruit prevails in the aftertaste.
