Blanco Granito

Portas - Finca Torre Penelas

Pazo Torre Penelas, the Torres family wine project in Rías Bajas, presents its first wine, named Blanco Granito, in 2019. White because it is an albarinyo cultured entirely in the pazo and Granite to be the first wine-grower to be raised in granite deposits, the predominant rock, and almost exclusive, in the name of Galician origin. Layers of history and time are embedded in the solid granite walls of Pazo Torre Penelas, one of the oldest estates in the Valle del Salnés. The tower, chapel, and raised granary – hórreo in Galician – recall a time of splendour, while the beautiful trellised vineyards around the property reveal a deeply rooted vinicultural tradition. The wine is made 100% from estate-grown grapes. It ferments and remains on its lees for eight months in egg-shaped granite vats. These unique vessels heighten the briny expression of the Albariño while simultaneously forging a historical connection to the ancestral vinification techniques of the Roman period, a time when granite wine presses were already in use in this area.
