Albariño Natural

  • Lagar de Costa
  • Rias Baixas, Spain

Method & Production

Lagar de Costa only produces wines from grapes from right next to the sea in Viña becerreira. The Albariño grapes are carefully harvested by hand. The must/wine spends 30 days in contact with the skins, during which time it goes through spontaneous fermentation using wild yeasts in stainless steel. No stiring of the lees occurs pre - during or post fermentation. 6 months ageing on the lees in 500 L barrels before bottling for 3 months and then its ready for release. The wine is made using minimul intervention, it is unfiltered, unfined and sulphite free. 

Tasting notes

Golden in colour. 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

Lighter fish dishes and grilled vegetables, chesse salads, and sushi.
