“Nectarine, pomelo and oyster-shell minerality on the nose, followed by a fresh streak of chalky acidity. Bright, yet fleshy on the palate.” – James Suckling, June 2022

ABOUT THE FAMILY
Familia Torres founded its first winery in Vilafranca del Penedès in 1870, 150 years ago, but its roots in the winegrowing traditions of Spain date back to the 16th century. Five generations have carried the family business forward, passing on their passion for wine culture from parents to children – a passion steeped in respect for land and tradition, and a firm belief in innovation. Today the family focuses on wines from unique vineyards and historical estates, as well as the recovery of ancestral varieties. Familia Torres has a historical connection to Penedès, Conca de Barberà, Priorat, and Costers del Segre, but now its presence extends to vineyards and wineries in preeminent Spanish wine regions – Rioja, Ribera del Duero, Rueda, and Rías Baixas.

ABOUT THE WINE
“Pazo das Bruxas” is produced in DO Rías Baixas, the undisputed birthplace of Albariño, predominately with grapes from the historic coastline of Salnés, blended with grapes from O Rosal. This classic expression of Albariño is characteristic of the Atlantic influenced maritime climate of Rías Baixas. Free draining sandy soil atop rocky granite soil beds prevents water
retention. The combination of fruit from temperate O’Rosal vineyards with slower to ripen parcels from Salnés provides optimal balance and high toned acidity. This 100% Albariño is pale gold with a soft green edge. Delicate and fragrant, with fine floral, lime blossom and lemon marmalade notes.

KEY POINTS
• 100% stainless steel fermentation and zero malolactic fermentation ensures wines of purity and peak freshness
• Pazo das Bruxas, translates to “House of the Witches” paying homage to the region’s culture of folklore and nature, where old country homes lie hidden between green forests and vineyards
• High trellis trained vines called “parral” or “pergola” allow for continual airflow for long vineyard ripening while the well-draining soil prevents excess moisture, developing concentrated fruit character
• Through sustainable innovation and conservation measures the winery has reduced its carbon emissions by over 30% since 2008
