Producer: Lagar de Cervera
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 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.
Outstandingly intense aromas, with hints of peaches, pears and ripe apples, 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.
Food Pairing: Seafood and fish, as well as salads, rice dishes and fresh cheese
