The grapes are fermented with native yeasts in concrete tanks. Ageing is in old 500 litre French oak barrel. Bottled without fining or filtration. This is soft yet full bodied with classic Garnacha body without the invasive tannins. This is pure, beautifully made and just delicious.
Notes on the producer
Lying in the south of Navarra, Viña Zorzal is a project run by three brothers who inherited the estate from their parents. The have been recuperating old vineyards and focusing on high altitude, bush-vine fruit. Their signature is a bright and juicy Garnacha Joven, packed with red fruits and great freshness. They're also making some impressive single vineyard wines from old vines which seriously over-deliver for the price.The family have a clear commitment and respect for their environment, and practice low intervention, environmentally-friendly viticulture: they don’t plough the vineyards, all processes are carried out manually, they use selected native plants for ground cover and fertilise with compost not chemicals.
