The most recent Lusco Albariño vintage, 2019, has reaped excellent results in two of Spain’s major wine ratings. The Premios Baco (Bacchus Awards), the competition that recognises the best young Spanish wines, has awarded a Gold Medal to Lusco Albariño for the third year in a row. The Guía Peñín, for its part, one of Spain’s foremost wine publications, has awarded the D.O. Rías Baixas 91 points – the same result the wine achieved in the last three editions of the guide.
These successes demonstrate how, year after year, Lusco exemplifies the varietal character of the Albariño grape. The achievement is the result of dedicated work in the vineyard nurturing the vines and the grapes, and of meticulous care taken in the winery. From the hand-selection of the bunches of grapes to the use of native yeasts and the wine’s six months’ ageing on its fine lees, every part of the winemaking process is geared to creating a unique, intense, structured white D.O. Rías Baixas wine.
Served at between 9 and 11ºC, Lusco Albariño is a perfect companion for foods such as razor clams, baked mackerel, hake and turbot.
