Albariño 'Rego do Sol'

  • Lagar de Costa
  • Rias Baixas, Spain

Method & Production

Lagar de Costa only produces wines from summer-grown grapes from right next to the sea in Viña becerreira. Cold maceration for 2 days. Rego do Sol spends 4 days in contact with the skins, during which time it goes through spontaneous ferment using wild yeasts. No stiring of the lees occurs pre - during or post fermentation. It ages in stainless steel before its ready for release. The wine is made using minimul intervention and sulphite free. 

Tasting notes

A 0-sulfur dosage natural wine that nonetheless offers varietal tipicity. The nose is a complex sum of green and citric fruits, backed with hints of fennel and grass. The palate is clean and crisp, where the fruit character is joined by a marked mineral salinity.

Food matching

This medium-bodied Albariño accompanies rather than domintes, making it a food-friendly companion for many dishes. Pairs well with salty dishes, fowl and most appetisers and tapas-style dishes, but shines best when paired with shellfish and fish in general.
