Zarate Espadeiro, Val Do Salnes, Spain, 2019

From two plots within a single, walled in vineyard of extremely old, ungrafted vines. Fermented with indigenous yeasts plus six months aging on its lees the 2019 vintage has a intriguing nose of dried apricot, peach, lemon and apple plus granite minerality. There’s a tempting hint of the lees, dried flowers and white blossom too. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and very mineral in personality, with a great core of tropical fruit balanced by lifting acidity, grip and a very long, rewarding finish. The 2019 Balado is delicious and inviting now but definitely worth sometime in the cellar to show what it’s really capable of. Up to 20 years.

Pairs well with roast lamb, roast chicken and other grilled meats.
