Product Description
Details

This is the new vintage of Lagar da Condesa, produced by the Lagar da Condesa winery, a branch of Gil Family Estates.

This varietal Spanish white wine is made from Albariño vineyards situated in Val de Salnés, in the heart of DO Rías Baixas. The vines grow in soils made of sand and granite which have a very good water drainage, a crucial feature considering the abundance of rainfall in that Galician region.

Harvested and transported in little boxes, the grapes were selected, destemmed and cold-soaked before being crushed. Then the wine juice was transferred into stainless steel tanks and into 500-litre and 600-litre oak barrels, where Lagar da Condesa 2020 was fermented under controlled temperature.

Finally, this white wine aged on lees was aged for 4 months on lees to obtain a smoother, rounder wine.

Additional Information
Appearance

The white wine Lagar da Condesa is medium straw with grey tinges.

Nose

Straightforward and well-defined, this Albariño smells of apples, pears and delicate lemony touches. In the background, there are hints of fennel, honey and ripe tropical fruit over a mineral background.

Palate

Fresh and savoury, this wine from Lagar da Condesa has volume, texture and a crisp acidity. Long finish with notes of bitter aromatic herbs and rosy pomelo. 

Our personal opinion

Utterly Atlantic, Lagar da Condesa 2020 proves again that the Gil Family has a keen eye for the best Spanish terroirs.

The name Juan Gil is a promise of quality. He rarely disappoints. This Albariño is a treat. Suave and sexy.
