Description

Viña Zorzal is located in the Southern part of the Navarra DO, very close to the border of Rioja. The larger parent house of Vinícola Corellana was founded by Antonio Sanz in 1989. The guiding principles here have always been sustainability and a return to historical grape varieties. With the coming of age of Antonios’ three sons, Xabier, Iñaki and Mikel, the winery Viña Zorzal was born. Like so many father/son stories, the children have adopted the idea of the father and taken it further. The farming is now organic and the focus is on making higher quality, site specific wines that respect history but also look to a brighter future.  Less is better, and non-intervention winemaking is the intended goal to show off the distinctive expression of special vineyard sites.

The Viña Zorzal focus has been the recovery of old vine farms in Fitero, in the southwest of Navarra.  From its partner Corral de los Altos in Fitero, the 2020 “Corral de los Altos” is Zorzal’s own interpretation of a 45-year-old plot of 2.1 hectares of Garnacha planted on a north-facing stony part of the village. The grapes fermented in stainless steel with indigenous yeasts and matured in used 500-liter oak barrels.

A tasty, juicy, Garnacha combining ripeness and freshness, power and elegance, meaty and juicy, with very fine tannins!  For more casual drinking, but over delivers for the price!
