Eulogio Pomares Sal da Terra
Region: Rias Baixas
Eulogio Pomares of Bodegas Zárate is located in the Val do Salnes, a sub-region of Rias Baixas named after the ‘sal’ (salt) the Romans used to harvest there. He is widely considered to be one of the most important producers of Albariño working today, working with low intervention to produced wines renowned for their Atlantic freshness and age-worthiness.
Sal da Terra is a collaboration between Eulogio, UK importer Ben Henshaw, wine writer Jamie Goode and Zalto glass manufacturer Daniel Primack made from Albariño grown in iron-rich granite soil referred to locally as xabre. Pure and exhilarating with crystalline citrus fruit, an intense salty twang and a steely minerality to the finish.
