Product Description

Who says Albariño can't age? Let's find 'em and shove a glass of this in their hands! While such wines may be the exception rather than the rule, Albariño does serious too from time to time and the best wines are certainly age-worthy. This is produced from a single parcel of Lusco's oldest vines the tiny yields are then raised in old 500-litre casks. Some may think we've gone bonkers shipping a seven-year-old Albariño, yet this is something special. We tasted it when we did a mini vertical on a recent visit to the Estate and it just blew our minds. It is full of energy and savoury complexity and has what it takes to prove we haven't quite yet lost our marbles.

"Light yellow. Intensely perfumed nose displays an impressive bouquet of orchard and pit fruits, melon, white flowers and subtly smoky lees. Taut, citrus-accented pear and white peach flavors boast excellent clarity and thrust. A lively mineral kick adds further energy to the powerful yellow fruit finishing flavors. Pretty stunning stuff."
