Tras da Viña Albariño, Zarate 2021

Tasting Notes

The 2021 Tras da Viña comes from a plot that has more vigor, the first of the grafted plots in Zarate, and they get greater yields, more than in 2020. This gets a longer élevage because, when the wine was started in 2004, they tried to integrate the acidity without malolactic, so they extended the aging with less but without bâtonnage (up to 36 months in the beginning); and they continued like that but shortened the aging a bit. The wine feels very young and very tasty, with a moderate 12.5% alcohol, with a fresh and herbal character. It's tasty, vibrant and saline and has a cold sensation in the palate. It feels fresher than the Balado. This went through malolactic. 5,400 bottles and 150 magnums were produced. It was bottled in May 2023.
