Marques de Murrieta
Own Vineyards: Grapes are sourced from our Pazo de Barrantes estate, surrounding the winery in the Salnes Valley (Rias Baixas, D.O. Galicia).
Grape Variety: 100% Albariño.
Manual Harvest: In 18 Kgs cases. From September 26 to October 4, 2015.
Winemaking: Once in the cellar, these grapes are first carefully de-stemmed and then gently pressed. This process helps extract the maximum aromatic potential from the grapes. The grape is fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks for 30 days after decantation of the juice’s small inner particles. Fermentation takes place in absence of the grape skins. It is left in contact with its fine lees for three months in the pursuit of texture and density
Bottling Date: April 2016. Pazo Barrantes develops an attractive aromatic complexity and mouth feelalongitsageing in bottle.
Pairing: Grilled White shrimp with lemon and parsley; Half cooked prawns macerated in Albariño Pazo Barrantes wine; Steamed razor clams, Virgin olive oil and a touch of tart tomato; Steamed mussels with a spicy tomato sauce.

Marques de Murrieta’s foundation is linked to the origins of Rioja wines. Since 1852 it was classified as the first Rioja and they established their “Chateau” in the Ygay Estate where the castle still stands to this day. Since then the winery has become a true icon of Spanish wines globally and produces exceptional reds and whites including an Albarino from Rias Baixas. Currently, the 11th Count of Creixell, Vicente D, Cebrián-Sagarriga and his family, oversee this historic property just outside of Logroño.
