Albarino 2016 Lagar de Costa

Pale lemon green. Intense aromas of citric, herbal and floral tones. Crisp, clean and fresh, well-balanced. On the palate, fresh green apple and pear, citric fruits, as well as herbal notes.

Lagar de Costa is small family run winery located on the Atlantic shore, opposite the island of La Toja in the heart of the Salnes. Lagar de Costa has a long tradition of growing Albariño which goes back to the beginning of the last century, but it has only been bottling its fruit since 2001. Some of the vineyards are more than 50 years old and yields are kept well below the DO average.

"concentration really comes through in this refreshing Galician white. Focused, minerally and very long on the palate with notes of lemon zest and lime and a hint of spritz. A really classy Albariño that's worth paying a little extra for. " 91 points, Tim Atkin MW

"Green fruit and nectarine aroma which is also subtly smoky with a pungent grassiness. Makes a powerful impression in the mouth with its crunchy fruit. Full flavoured, modern and expressive with a lingering finish and a mineral, salty note. Highly recommended." Decanter
