Albariño

THE MAXIMUM EXPRESSION OF ALBARIÑO FROM SALNES VALLEY

An icon of the Rías Baixas

Viña Zaco Albariño, a fragrant, fresh, and aromatic white wine with citrus and floral notes.

Grape growing in Rías Baixas, located in Galicia, North west of Spain, benefits from the Atlantic influence and a training system known as ‘Parra’.

Vines grown “en parra” can attain the impressive length of 600 feet. This growing method offers ideal ripening conditions.

Viña Zaco is all hand-harvested and results from an innovative winemaking process. The varietal is vinified in 3 differentiated ways in order to elaborate a modern and unique coupage:

  • Classic fermentation in order to stand out the fruit of the varietal -citric skin, green apple, floral – giving the wine freshness and vivacity, typical from Salnés Valley.
  • Malolactic fermentation: the fruit is riper, with less acidity and more complexity.
  • Left for several months on its lees before being bottled. This process results in added complexity in the wine.

This winemaking method gives the wine complexity, an unctuous mouthfeel and great freshness.
