Zarate Albarino Rias Baixas

$32.76

This lively and complex Albarino comes from Rías Baixas’ most renowned winemaking families. Bodegas Zarate is located in the Val do Salnes, named after the ‘sal’ (salt) the Romans used to harvest there, and home to around 70% of the regional production. Established in 1920, Ernesto Zarate was pivotal in promoting Albariño in the area. Current winemaker Eulogio Pomares (Ernesto’s grandson), studied in Bordeaux and Germany investigating parallels between Albariño and Riesling, his knowledge of the Albariño grape is second to none. Since he took over management of his family vineyards in 2000, he has focused on improving them. He started to work organically, abandoning mineral fertilisers. Instead he uses shells from the surrounding coastline which provide the calcium and magnesium the vines need, and don’t get from the acidic soils. He also uses local seaweed as compost. In the cellar he is low intervention and his wines are characterised by their Atlantic freshness and age-worthiness.
