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. Luis Gutierrez

Comes from a vineyard planted in 1970 with cuttings from the original El Palomar. The soils here are a bit different, a decomposed yellow granite, which is a bit richer than his other sites. It is fermented and aged in steel tanks with an extended elevage of 24-36 months, depending on the vintage, and does partial malolactic. In general, it is the most accessible at release of the 3 single-vineyards, and often very Chablis-like.
