Description

Details of wine

One of the most traditional cellars of the Rias Baixas where the production of Albariño is among the most renowned in Spain and where ancient traditions can still be breathed.
Bodegas Zarate boasts a history of more than 75 years in which the winemaking techniques have kept the ancient traditions by combining with new technologies and giving vines to the highest quality wines.

Palomar is a unique variety of Albariño from vines planted in one of the oldest estates documented in the Rias Baixas. The vines are more than 150 years old and are planted on a very superficial granite soil. The roots, in search of food, penetrate the rock, giving the wine a very special mineral character.

A production of only 2500 bottles, testifies to the low yield but the great quality of these ancient grapes.

A white with great freshness, to be enjoyed young or at most after two years of aging.

WINEMAKING Le uve vengono diraspate e sottoposte ad una lunga e soffice pigiatura, ottenendo una bassa resa in mosto. Il mosto viene fatto fermentare in un foudre di 2.200 litri di rovere francese dei Vosgi di 15 anni. Con la fermentazione in foudre si ottiene una bassa estrazione di rovere ma un innalzamento ossidativo che permette al vino di rimanere a contatto con le proprie fecce senza effettuare travasi fino a dopo la fermentazione malolattica, che si sviluppa di forma spontanea. Dopo la prima svinatura, il vino rimane a contatto con le fecce fini per altri tre mesi fino all'imbottigliamento.

CELLAR

Name: Bodega Zarate
Address: Av. Bouza Martín, 23 - Meaño, Pontevedra (Spagna)

Eulogio Pomares continues the family tradition of this Salnès historic cellar since 2000, and cultivates 6.5 ha (predominantly Albariño and also a few red stained Caiño vines, Loureiro tinto, Espadeiro). The heritage of old vineyards (some centenarians and foot outside), the location of the vineyards in the privileged area of Sisan and Padrenda, the mulching of the soils for the care of the organic substance and the precision of the winemaking of Eulogio make the wines of this cellar a Reference in DO Rias Baixas. White wines with aging capacity and red (a rarity) are the most expressive and complex of the area.
