Characteristics of El Zarzal

El Zarzal is a white wine made by Bodegas Emilio Moro, D.O. Bierzo.

The history of Bodegas Emilio Moro is that of a family that has been dedicated to wine for more than half a century, where the first generation devoted its efforts to the land, the second taught the third generation the know-how, and the latter has built up a brand that has become an international benchmark.

They currently own 200 hectares of vineyards, all grafted with the purest Tinto Fino clone. The oldest of these, located in the Valderramiro estate, in the heart of Ribera del Duero, date from 1924.

Harvest after harvest, Emilio Moro has discovered its own precise identity in the production of the traditional reds of Ribera del Duero, with a modern touch.

El Zarzal is a white wine made with Godello grapes from vineyards located in Valle del Silencio (León), more than 600 meters above sea level, on loamy clay-sandy soils, with a slightly acid pH.

After harvesting by hand, the wine is fermented at a controlled temperature in 2,500 liter foudres where it remains on its fine lees for 8 months.

Alcohol: 13.5%
Serve at 8ºC
Pairing
Baked white fish, Smoked salmon, Soupy rice, Sushi

Tasting notes El Zarzal

A vintage where the Atlantic climate has ruled over the continental.  The lightness of this type of climate, together with the perfect sanitary condition of the vineyard, has given rise to an excellent vintage from this area.  The year began with typical temperate and rainy winter weather.  What differentiated the year was the intense rains that fell between the months of April and May, conditioning the vegetative development of the vine.    The summer was then noticeable for being warm and dry, the perfect combination for the perfect grape.

Production area D.O. Bierzo

Winery Emilio Moro

Bierzo wine is on the rise. It is a region defined by its small scale work, with plots scattered around, very old vines, artisan work of the small scale wineries, and the character of their principal variety, the Mencía grape, which produces fresh, fruity and delicious wines. Although the region is well known mostly for its red wines, it also produces white and rosé wines. If the red wines here are defined by the Mencía variety, then the white wines here are defined by the Godello. Godello grape has great aromatic potential, as well as an excellent balance between alcohol and acidity.  Despite the great potential of El Bierzo, its rise in the wine world would not have been possible without two people: Raúl Pérez and Ricardo Pérez. Two great winemakers who in little time have been able to produce critically acclaimed wines from the Bierzo region.

Harvest after harvest, Emilio Moro has found his own and precise identity in the production of the traditional reds of Ribera del Duero, with a modern touch. These wines are full of colour, highly expressive, virile and eager to live. They rely on the caste and nobility of the family clone Tinto Fino, the strength of the terroir, the selection of wood and a well-interpreted modern oenology. The younger red wines have a good body, without lacking in flavour and balance. The game between time and wood suggests more complex wines, more penetrating, and at the same time more velvety. This is particularly portrayed in their single-vineyard wines.
