The Ultimate Thirst Quencher - 2016 Albariño, Lagar de Cervera

One of the in-house favourites here at Farr Vintners is Lagar de Cervera’s Albariño – a property that is owned and managed by the iconic La Rioja Alta estate. When La Rioja Alta decided to stop making white Rioja, they wanted to replace it with something that they believed epitomised the easy drinking, fruit driven style that was becoming associated with modern Spanish white wines. Albariño was the perfect choice. It is designed to bring instant pleasure – it is not a wine to muse too much over, more a wine to turn the screwcap, pour and enjoy.

Albariño, and this one in particular, is aromatic and has lots of tropical fruit but crucially has a fantastic level of acidity. This makes it perfect to enjoy on its own or with food (especially fish) and it is a surprisingly good partner to spicy food. Equally as important as its versatility is its price - it is an absolute bargain at just £120 per 12 bottles in bond (just over £175 per 12 including taxes).

“Ripe peach with a hint of baked apple and acacia honey on the nose – ripe yet fresh with higher toned white flowers. The palate has a saline edge which tempers the ripe peach, pineapple and apricot fruit. Brisk acidity keeps this juicy wine clean and fresh, with a vibrant and lifted finish. Perfect summer drinking.”

16 points, Farr Vintners

“This is so pure, pretty and bright. It has a lively citrus core (lemons and tangerines) with a hint of tropical fruit (passionfruit and pineapple), but never so much that it intrudes on the freshness. The acidity is quite lively, and it combines on the finish with a mouthwatering saline character. This is pure and very treble heavy, with lots of vitality yet no lack of flavour. Benchmark Albariño.”
