D.O.Ca. Rioja (La Rioja)
Viña Zorzal Malayeto is a red wine from Navarra produced by Bodegas Zorzal in Corella. It was founded in 1989 with the intention of restoring the area’s native varieties and with the philosophy that wine is born in the vineyard.
Viña Zorzal Malayeto was born on a single plot of land in the town of Fitero. Malayeto was formed on rocky, stony soils with clay, limestone and conglomerates. It is located 512 metres above sea level with a continental climate.
In order to produce this 100% Garnacha wine, alcoholic fermentation takes place with its own lees in 2000 litre French oak vats. It is then decanted into two-year old French oak barrels where it carries out malolactic fermentation and ages for 9 months.
Viña Zorzal Malayeto 2019 is a red wine with aromas of fresh, juicy red fruits on the nose, accompanied by spicy and earthy nuances. On the palate it is flavoursome and full of citrusy freshness. A slightly mineral red wine with soft tannins and a long finish.
