Vina Zorzal Tempranilla, Navarra Spain
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.
Viña Zorzal aspires to recapture the wines of their ancestors, and although Rioja dominates the conversation when it comes to Tempranillo, the variety belongs to the history of Navarra as well. Fresh fruit, medium body, balanced tannin and acid, this is simple in the very best way. Very fun to drink and very easy to finish the bottle.
