The eponymous unoaked Albariño 2020 Zarate comes from 10 plots in Padrende (Meaño) on sandy granite soils that average 35 years of age. The must from a soft pressing fermented with indigenous yeasts in stainless steel, where it was kept with lees for 12 months. It has 12.9% alcohol and very good freshness (pH 3.16) and acidity (6.4 grams). It has the fragrant personality of the 2020 whites and the vibrant and focused palate, round, complete and balanced. Some 40% of the wine underwent malolactic. This wine is pretty consistent from vintage to vintage. It repays time in bottle.
