Zarate 'Tras da Vina', Albarino, Val do Salnes, Spain, 2018
The Tras da Viña is from a single vineyard, planted from cuttings taken from one of Eulogio’s pre-phylloxera El Palomar vineyard. With up to 24 months on its lees this is a wine of considerable depth and character that offers up a focused aroma of citrus fruits with a defined minerality. This is a full-bodied and complex wine that’s full of life. It’s that bit softer that the Balado so accessible sooner in it’s life but it too is worth sticking aside, at least a few bottles, for another 5-20 years.
Pairs well with white meat, seafood and shellfish
