Lagar de Costa is a family-run estate, where three generations have focused on the care of Albariño, with many of their vines being more than 50 years old; the winery itself was built over a century ago along the Atlantic coast. With the vines trained on trellises, the coastal winds blow through easily, drying the grapes and leaving a subtle saline fingerprint. The Costa family has direct control over all the processes, in both the vineyards and the winery, aiming to highlight the unique characteristics of the Albariño varietal and maritime influence.
The tart lime and grapefruit, chalky mineral, and floral aromatics undeniably convey the essence of a coastal wine. Incisive flavors of citrus peel and orchard fruit open up to ripe melon and peach. Classic saline flavors become the focus on the finish as the fruit fades.
