Characteristics of Zárate El Palomar

The magnum of Zarate El Palomar, a wine cellar by Zárate DO Rías Baixas.

The Zárate winery has been producing albariños since the early eighteenth, which makes it one of the historic wineries in this region.   Zárate El Palomar is a single variety of Albariño from vines planted in one of the oldest estates documented in the Rias Baixas. The vines are 150 years old and planted on very shallow granitic soil. The roots, in search of food, penetrate the rock, giving the wine a very special mineral character. Bodega Zárate use environmentally friendly techniques, without the use of herbicides. The harvest is done manually and grape selection takes place in the vineyard. Once destemmed, the grapes are lightly pressed. Zárate El Palomar is fermented in French oak barrels of 2,200 litres over eight years. The liquid remains with its residue until after malolactic fermentation, which develops naturally. Once completed, it is racked and remains in contact with its lees for three months until bottling. Zárate El Palomar spends 2 months in the bottle before going to market. It can be consumed immediately, although it will evolve favourably over the next 5-10 years in optimum conditons. Due to low production, only 2500 bottles are produced.

Tasting notes Zárate El Palomar

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.
Sight Straw yellow. Nose

Very fruity nose. Passion fruit, citrus, white fruit, melon and florals.

Taste

The taste is fresh, oily and velvety. White fruit with some sour notes. Good acidity. Long lead.

    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.
