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.
This wine is ruby in color with aromas of red fruits, forest floor, licorice and coffee. It is light bodied and bright with acidity. The prominent fruit and herbaceous notes are rounded out with nicely integrated tannins.

We love this wine with richly spiced foods and lighter meats - think Puebla style chicken in mole sauce.
