2017 Zarate Caiño Rias Baixas

SKU #1389558 94 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark I loved the 2017 Caíño since I first put my nose in the glass. It's pale, ethereal and floral, with a spicy touch. Caíño was the classical red wine people drunk in Rías Baixas, and the grape had higher commercial value than Albariño, which didn't really take off until the 1980s. Then we forgot about the reds and even thought Rías Baixas was only white wine. This is a great category that very much fits with the preference for lighter and gastronomical reds with moderate alcohol and great freshness. This should also age nicely in bottle. 1,330 bottles were filled in September 2017. (LG) 94+ points. Inner quote mark (2/2019)

K&L Notes

A legendary producer of single vineyard Albariños in the birthplace of the grape variety, Galicia's Salnes valley, Zarate also makes expressive, delicious red wines from indigenous grape varieties which are often described as having more in common with Gamay or even such obscure wine geek favorites as Pelaverga or Pineau d'aunis. With lighter weight tannins and mouth-watering acidity, this is the type of Spanish red which still flies under the radar, but is absolutely worth discovering.
