The Viña Zorzal Malayeto is made from the fruit of old Grenache bush vines in Finca Malayeto, a 2.4 hectare plot in Fitero in the Ribera Baja region, which forms part of the Navarre appellation. Influenced by a continental climate rather than a Mediterranean one, this vineyard is one of the oldest in Navarre where vines manage to survive thanks to their roots digging deep through the stony soils to look for water. Rainfall permeates the soil and the stones help retain the heat on sunny days. The soil is also made up of chalk, clay, limestone and even volcanic basalt.
Open and expressive on the nose, Malayeto is a natural wine without fancy make-up; what we would call a true wine. Aromas of fresh fruit and almost jam-like ripe fruits, with the usual sweet background found in Grenache wines. It has hints of minerals as well as wild Mediterranean forest, balsamic, and fine wood notes. Flowery sensations of juicy and crunchy fruit, such as ripe pears, make this an extremely complete wine.
Fruity, serious, complex, and balanced on the nose; intense and quite concentrated on the palate but with an exuberance and acidity which helps the wine glide around the mouth. A fleshy and extremely well-produced wine.

Wine from Viña Zorzal
Back in 1989 Antonio Sanz finally fulfilled his dream of creating his own wines in Navarre after a long career working in the world of wine production.

Viña Zorzal Wines, dedicated to producing wines in the DO Navarra and DOC Rioja regions, was born with the...
