Origin - Spain, Navarra,
Viña Zorzal offers some seriously delicious, well-made wines that come with a very 'palatable' price tag. This vibrant, juicy red offers impressive concentration and freshness and is a perfect match for a summer barbecue with grilled steak, burgers and even robustly seasoned poultry.
Zorzal, meaning “wood thrush,” is the brainchild of Antonio Sanz. Sanz had been in the wine industry for his entire life and founded his own bodega in 1989 in Navarra. Over the years, his three children have worked alongside him and eventually taken over.
In 1998, Mikel Sanz, then an agricultural engineering student, and viticulturist Rafael Reverte came across the centenary garnacha vineyards that, despite having been neglected, showed great potential. They began the laborious work of refurbishing the vines without the use of herbicides or pesticides, working the soils and treating them with organic compost throughout winter and summer and drastically reducing the yields.
Later in 2009, Viña Zorzal was created to showcase the indigenous varieties of Navarra, especially Garnacha, Graciano, Tempranillo and Mazuelo. Viña Zorzal is a family affair; brothers Xabi (Export Manager), Mikel (Vineyard Manager), and Iñaki (Project Manager) oversee all aspects of the estate. All wines are estate bottled, grown organically, fermented by native yeasts and aged four months in used French Oak.
