Product Description
Details

A varietal Albariño, Galicia's best known white grape, Lagar de Cervera is produced by Lagar de Fornelos, a branch of the La Rioja Alta Group.

The grapes of this Spanish white wine were sourced from vineyards surrounded by forests along the course of the Miño river. The vineyards are scattered across the Salnés county, in the DO Rías Baixas.

Harvested by hand, the grapes were first cooled and then macerated at 10ºC for about 10 hours. Then they were destemmed and crushed.

Drawn-off, the wine must was fermented at 15ºC. It is worth nothing tha this varietal Albariño from Rías Baixas did not go through malolactic fermentation, because acidity already showed optimal parameters after alcoholic fermentation.

Finally, Lagar de Cervera 2020 was aged on its lees to improve its creaminess and roundness.

Pair this white wine from Rías Baixas with shrimp, rice dishes and fish and chips.

Appearance

The white wine Lagar de Cervera is deep straw with some greenish tinges.

Nose

This expressive Albariño smells of passion fruit, grapefruit, orange rind and white flowers, nuanced by hints of hay and ripe apples.

Palate

Fresh and smooth, this wine from bodega Lagar de Fornelos has a delicately unctuous texture and an excellent acidity. Ripe peaches, a dash of citrus and aromatic herbs and suggestions of jasmine and white roses. Long finish with some bitter remembrances.

Our personal opinion

Seafood, Japanese food, rice dishes and Spaghetti ai Frutti di Mare will all be excellent companions of this Lagar de Cervera 2020.
