Characteristics of Zárate Balado

Zárate Balado is a white wine produced by the Zárate winery in the Rías Baixas.

The Zárate winery is a historic cellar in this region, pioneering the development of albariño since the eighteenth century. Zarate Balado is a varietal Albariño. The grapes come from two smallholdings, Pago El Balado. "Balo" means wall in Galician and this plot is surrounded by a wall of granite. The soils are poor in organic matter and produce ripe grapes with a low yield.
The harvest is done manually and it is in the plot that grape selection takes place. Once in the winery, the grapes are destemmed and pressed gently. After a light racking, they are fermented spontaneously in steel tanks. Zárate Balado remains in its residue for 3 months. A racking occurs and the residue is maintained for 6 months. A low production Albariño. Only 2,500 bottles go to market.

Zárate Balado 2017 is a unctuous white wine, full and fresh. An excellent vintage for one of the gems of Zárate, which once again shows all the character of the variety, with a spectacular acidity that makes it very long and with an unmeasurable ageing potential.

Designation of Origin D.O. Rías Baixas

Winery Zárate

Rías Baixas wines would not be where they are today without the native Albariño grape variety. Although red wines are also produced in Rías Baixas, practically 100% of Rías Baixas wines are white. Among them, the vast majority of them are made with the Albariño grape. As well as young wines, fresh and aromatic, the region also makes wines aged in the barrels, complex wines with great personalities. Albariño wines can either be single varieties, or be part of a blend with other characteristic grapes of the region: Treixadura, Loureira Blanca and Godello.
