Tasting Notes

Zarate is legendary in the Salnes sub-zone of Rias Baixas. They were the first to bottle single vineyard Albariños, highlighting different terroirs within the region. Tras da Vina is a single parcel planted in the 1970's with cuttings from the Palomar vineyard. The soils here decomposing yellow granite and are the richest soils of all of their planting. This sees extended lees aging, over 2 years with no lees stiring, and partial malolactic fermentation. All of that was done to soften the acidity but enhances everything other component of the wine. It is powerful and driven with still racy acidity, great fruit and intense minerality. *organic*

    A classically dry style of Albarino but, one that holds many surprises. Apricot, white peach and tropical fruits abound with (surprise!) a mid-palate mouth coating richness. A long, clean finish with citrus fruit and crisp pineapple. For those of you who love/admire Albarino, this is a must try.

    Aromas of almond, apricot, straw and honey lead to a clean mid-palate filled with ripe stone fruit. This is refreshing and finishes with a dusting of palate cleansing talc-like mineral. This is expressive and poised with wonderful purity of fruit.

    This albarino is excellent and delicious. It is classic with a nice round mouth feel and wonderful mineral notes. It is complex with a clean and crisp finish. It will go well with shell fish and chicken.

    This Albarino has some gravitas lined with finesse and panache. Zarate's bottlings are the one that will teach you to take this varietal seriously and always exceeds the unexpected palate. The aromas of sea water, fresh pineapple, fleshy peach, passionfruit and not quite ripe mango, flavors that coincide in taste and texture. A thoroughly enjoyable bottle that can pare with butter seared fish, shaved fennel salad with fried capers tossed in a lemon-olive oil dressing.
