2018 Lagar di Cervera Albarino
La Rioja Alta, one of the most storied wineries in Rioja decided that they would abandon white wine making in Rioja and search for the ideal location in Spain for whites. They settled on Galicia and purchased an old vineyard and winery and began the long process of rebuilding.
Yellow with green hues; clean and bright. Ample, forthright nose, highlighted by the typical varietal aromas of the Albariño (ripe apples and pears, stone fruit, particularly apricots) and a remarkable citrus background. Lively, fresh and structured in the mouth, with well-integrated acidity. Very persistent aftertaste, where hints of exotic fruit (lychees) make their appearance.
Perfect to enjoy with any appetizer. It is the ideal companion to seafood and fish, as well as salads, fish rice dishes, fowl, and fresh cheese. Ideal in combination with Asian dishes, for example, with sushi or sashimi.
Decanter, 90 points
Beautifully expressive; fuzzy peach, white stone fruit and a touch of smoke. Saline twist and linear acidity which carried through to the finish.
