Tasting

Lagar de Costa, Barrica 2013

Lemon-green in color. Intense white flowers and aromatic herbs on the nose - laurel, green tea leaf, anís, light smoky notes, with hints of marzipan. The wine opens to show orchard fruits - apricots and quince, backed by mineralogy. A very fresh attack, with good acidity, yet voluminous, well integrated barrel notes, slightly toasted, and creamy.

Lagar de Costa, Barrica 2012

Pale Lemon-green, medium intensity of aromatic herbs (camomille, green tea), white flowers, candied fruit. Fresh attack, yet unctuous and hedonistic, offering flavors of mature stone fruits backed by light toasted notes from the barrel.
