Zorzal 'Malayeto', Garnacha, Navarra, Spain 2021

Brothers Xabi, Iñaki and Mikel Sanz created Viña Zorzal in 2007, taking advantage of their long history and tradition as a winemaking family in Correla, Navarra. Their family winery, Bodegas Correlana, had been run by their grandfather and father to great success in the region, and they became a reference point in the industry.  

Their landscape differs from the much flatter areas of Navarra where Garnacha and Tempranillo are cropped in high volumes. Their vines grow on rocky and stony soils with variegated clays (heterogeneous), and limestone and composite soils. 

Pairing: taco night, pulled pork

Grape: Garnacha

Viticulture: Biodynamic

"One of the true bargains from Navarra and the whole of Spain has to be the Zorzal Malayeto; it's pure Garnacha from a plot of 2.39 hectares of 40-year-old vines on complex soils with limestone, gravel and stones. It fermented with indigenous yeasts in a combination of concrete and stainless steel and matured in a 4,000-liter oak vat and eight used 500-liter oak barrels for 12 months. This is my go-to wine here, a Garnacha that always delivers and the one that for me defines the house style and the character of the year. This is soft and caressing, elegant and harmonious. This is every bit as good as the 2018 despite the warmer conditions of the year, keeping the freshness; there is great purity and detail and it's elegant and balanced, extremely harmonious and seamless, with very fine tannins and great integration of the oak. Bravo!"
