Characteristics of Zárate Caiño Tinto
Zárate Caiño Tinto is a red wine produced by the Zárate winery in the Salnés Valley, in Rías Baixas.
The Zárate winery is a historic winery that has been producing wine since the eighteenth century in the Rías Baixas. Zárate Caiño Tinto is a single-variety Caiño, a native variety of the Salnes Valley, a late-ripening variety that produces very fruity wines with high acidity. The grapes come from an old vineyard over 60 years old with granitic soil.
Harvesting is done manually and grape selection takes place in the plot itself. Once in the winery, the grapes are trodden without being destemmed in an open destination where fermentation takes place.
The grapes are trodden daily for four weeks. After this long maceration good extraction, both the colour and the aroma are achieved. Zárate Caiño Tinto is aged for 12 months in French oak barrels, which are 3 year old. Once matured, the wine is bottled without filtering or clarification.
If you want to try this wine- hurry! Only 1,250 bottles were produced.
The 2017 vintage has been distinguished by the excellent health of the vineyard and the intense heat. Winter and spring were warmer than normal, accelerating the growth cycle 15 days and which was prolonged during summer, bringing forward the date of the harvest to the end of August. The growth cycle went smoothly, with good flowering and no notable pests. In summer, the drought worsened and in August they began to see symptoms of dehydration in the bunches. However, rains at the beginning of September restored the balance of the vineyard.
The wines of this vintage are identified by having something more volume due to its warmth and great freshness. A vintage to enjoy young, or as it is the norm for great wines of the area, to save for a few years.
Zárate Caiño Tinto 2016 is a fresh and fluid red wine with character. This vintage displays all the character of the variety. Frank on the nose, it reveals red fruit with floral notes of roses and jasmine, and elegant notes of black pepper. On the palate it is vibrant, lively and very lingering.

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.
