Optimum growing conditions with the driest Spring of the last 50 years, combined with mild temperatures in early summer and rainfall in early August all contributed to produce healthy grapes of perfect ripeness by harvest time. Only the strictest selection of just fifty percent of the total harvest has been used to produce the Albariño Lagar de Cervera, using the grapes from their finest plot with an average vine age of 25 years. Fresh and crisp, the palate has excellent fruit weight with peachy, tropical fruit flavours, citrus and floral notes. The perfect balance of natural acidity gave no need for malolactic fermentation. The wine spent 3 months on lees with weekly batonnage to give further depth, complexity and creaminess.
Reviews & Scores
Supple and expansive, with very good depth and energy. This wine has the heft to handle richer foods but also the vivacity to work with simply prepared lighter fare as well. Stephen Tanzer
