2020 Albariño, Lagar de Cervera, Galicia

Tasting Notes

Yellow with green hues; clean and bright. Outstandingly intense aromas, with hints of stone fruit (peaches), white fruit (pears and ripe apples) and quince, in addition to a remarkable lemon leaf citrus background.
A flavoursome mouth is accompanied by an enjoyable breadth and freshness, together with a very well-integrated acidity. Very persistent, fruit-forward finish. Perfect to enjoy with any appetiser. It is the ideal companion to seafood and fish.

Vineyard Information

This Albariño estate in Rías Baixas was acquired by La Rioja Alta S.A. in 1988, when the company, formed by five Rioja winemaking families in 1895, took the bold decision to cease white Rioja production and find somewhere to produce a better Spanish white wine. The Galician winery was rebuilt - twice - and the vineyards expanded from five to 65 hectares. The project has been run throughout by Ángel Suárez, who found a microclimate and planted and vinified in such a way to produce Albariño of remarkable balance - citrus acidity, stone-fruit aromatics and great structure.
