Lagar de Costa is small, family-run winery in Rias Baixas, the high-quality, coastal region of northern Spain that's home to what many wine experts would describe as one of the world's most exciting, deliciously dry white wines - Albarino.

The buzz around this grape has led to some very high prices (and occasionally disappointing wines) - but today you can pick up the one of the best - in terms of both quality and value - that the region has to offer ...
the 2017 Lagar de Costa.

It's exceptionally pure and full-flavoured, yet also crisp, juicy and elegant ... when you taste it you'll see why it's rated so highly!

With an excellent 4 Star Vivino rating and a 90+ scores year after year, this must be amongst the world's best value fine whites - and with 19% off and the cheapest price we can find in the UK, it's an unmissable bargain at just £13.25 a bottle!.

About the wine

So what makes Lagar de Costa - from an unassuming, family-run estate - so special? The answer is very simple; everything is perfect. The vineyards are perfectly sited, close to the sea where the grapes ripen slowly but steadily, developing real depth of flavour - even a delightful whiff of salt spray. The family tend the half-century old vines entirely by hand, the vineyard is entirely organic and and the winery is a perfect blend of the modern and the traditional. All this naturally gives exquisitely fine wines of world-beating quality.  

Great stuff. Beautifully rich and full flavoured. A lovely straw-gold colour in the glass. Subtly smoky nose with fresh citrus, peach, nectarine green fruits and a whiff of herbs and sea salt. Fresh yet full in the mouth with stone fruit and a delicate apple character sharpened by vibrant citrus freshness. A powerful impression on the palate. Vibrant lemon curd acidity, full flavoured, modern and expressive. Long, lingering finish, with a clean mineral salt note. This delicious served with rich seafood, creamy shellfish and even roast chicken

About the winery

Lagar de Costa is a family run winery where six generations have been dedicated to the tending the vineyards and making of fine Albarino - long before it was the hot ticket it is now. The winery was built over a century ago and it has undergone several refurbishments, though the old stone structure and original timber framework has been preserved. The family is literally hands-on in their approach to winemaking - everything is done by hand wherever possible.

They hand-select the best Albarino grapes from their gnarled, weathered vines, many over 60 years of age, that grow along the coast line. At the winery, they combine the best of traditional and modern methods. The final aim is always to obtain a wine that expresses the unique characteristics of their vineyards. When you taste it, you taste the sun, the wild herbs that grow between the vines, the lemon trees and the sea spray. This is what makes their wines so excitingly irrresistable.

About the vineyard

Lagar de Costa has a long tradition of growing Albariño which goes back to the beginning of the last century. Most of the vines are more than 50 years old and yields are kept well below the average - giving real depth of flavour.

The soil is predominantly sandy and the ocean influence keeps the temperature at a yearly average of 14 degrees - perfect for fresh, vibrant Albarino, which thrives in this mild climate. Only the best grapes go to make up the final wine, which offers an exuberant floral, mineral character and is a true expression of this exciting grape and unique vineyard.

TEMPERATURE CONTROLLED SHIPPING OVERVIEW

Thank you for trusting Vivino for your wine orders! In order to ensure that your wine is protected from the elements during transport, Vivino has developed a comprehensive program for temperature controlled shipping:


  • All shipments to Non-West Coast states (CA, OR, WA, ID, MT, WY, NV, AZ, CO, NM) will be sent via temperature controlled truck to the closest regional hub. These facilities, referred to as "gateways", are temperature controlled and located strategically throughout the country.
  • Once a shipment arrives at the gateway*, it will be transferred to UPS or Fedex for the final part of its journey

* Note that ice packs (if ordered) will be added to your package at this time.


SHIPPING SCHEDULES FOR TEMPERATURE CONTROLLED SHIPMENTS

All orders placed before 1pm EST on Wednesday will be shipped out on Friday of the same week. All orders placed after this time will be stored in a temperature controlled warehouse and shipped out the following Friday.


Delivery times, therefore, may take 8-14 days from order date, accounting for fulfillment, 4-5 days shipment to the regional hub, and 1-2 days for local delivery.


If you would like a more expeditious delivery option, please select 2-Day or Overnight Shipping.


TRACKING INFORMATION

Tracking information will not be available for your shipment until it reaches the regional hub, due to the fact that the shipment is sent via common (temperature controlled) carrier and there is no individual tracking number for the package.


You will however receive a confirmation email indicating that your shipment has left the West Coast warehouse and is en route to your closest regional hub. Your order will say "UPS Label Created", but this label will not be scanned until it reaches the regional hub.


Once the shipment reaches the regional hub, you will be able to track your package (likely 4-5 days after shipping date). At this point, the package is en route to your home/office.


KEY ADVANTAGES OF TEMPERATURE CONTROLLED SHIPPING

  • Your wine can be protected from environmental damage for the entirety of its journey
  • This service is provided to you at no additional cost
