2014 Rías Baixas Pazo San Mauro (Best Buy) Part of the Marqués de Vargas group from Rioja, Pazo San Mauro is located in the Condado do Tea zone, with vineyards on terraces directly above the Minho River. Its 2014 is linear and mineral, built on a penetrating and sharp acidity. Austere and shy, it takes a few minutes in the glass for the fruit to emerge in apricot and pear scents over a creamy and refreshing texture. For grilled prawns. —Patricio Tapia
