Zarate is a family-owned estate located in Meaño, the heart of the Salnés Valley in Rias Baixas. The 11 vneyards are planted on mostly granitic soil. Average vine aged is 35 years old.
This wine is fermented in stainless steel tanks on the lees for 30 months with no battonage. Due the extended time it has ageing on the lees, Tras da Viña is richer and creamier than the basic albariño.
It really expresses its terroir with the minerally granite combining a honeyed nose with hints of cheese rind. The wine has texture on the palate, whilst retaining the steely minerality that makes it able to age and still taste so lively.
