Zárate 2019 AlbariñoRegular price £19
Not all Albariño is created equal. Those made by Zárate have more in common with Chablis than some of the simplified, lesser versions. Dating back to 1920, Zárate is a small artisan producer in the Val do Salnés sub-region, named by the Romans for the salt they used to harvest there. A certain saltiness seems somehow to infuse this wine too. It has lovely aromatics of fresh fruit and flowers, but a mineral bite to it which keeps it refreshing. An energising drink perfect for summer.
100% Albariño. Fermented with wild yeasts in open-top stainless steel vats. Aged three months in tank on its lees.
