Viña Zorzal

Antonio Sanz founded this estate in April 1989, with the help of two of his friends and fellow wine lovers, and it has gone on to achieve great popularity, particularly for its work with the lesser-known graciano grape native to the Navarra region. It is now run by the second generation of the Sanz family, brothers Xabi and Iñaki, who oversee sales and winemaking respectively. The brothers have injected a new lease of life into the portfolio, and were both responsible for creating the highly successful Zorzal wine range.

The modern winery is in the village of Corella, in the Ribero Baja area of Navarra, the region which borders Rioja. It is a fertile area known for its wine, fruit and farming, with a Mediterranean climate and sun-drenched slopes bordering the river Ebro, making for excellent grape growing conditions.

The Sanz family has 70 hectares of vines, some of which – including the graciano and garnacha used for the Zorzal range we buy – are over 35 years old. As well as graciano and garnacha, the estate grows tempranillo, mazuelo, merlot and cabernet sauvignon.

In the winery, the team works hard to preserve the natural fruity character of its wines. To that end, the wines are fermented in stainless-steel tanks and the garnacha remains completely unoaked, whereas the graciano spends just four months in French oak.

The Times

… juicy, red plum-fruited … one of those unoaked, easy-swigging, inexpensive reds everyone will enjoy.

Transparent garnet. A bit raw on the nose. But very agreeable, clean, fresh and fruity with light tannins. Beaujolais build. 15.5/20

Amongst the cheaper wines of this selection, 100% Garnacha or Grenache, made in stainless steel. Immediately juicy, easy and attractive on the nose, there's a little floral perfume to the ripe red berries. The palate has a creamy texture and almost chocolaty edge, the fruit a little darker than the nose suggested, with a ripe but biting axis of spice, tannin and acidity to freshen the finish. Excellent everyday house wine potential here. 87/100

Bright, juicy, gulpable red that would be perfect with grilled and roast veg. Spain’s answer to beaujolais.

Superb value garnacha from up-and-coming Zorzal bodegas in Navarra’s Corrella village. Andre Sanz with sons Xabier and Inaki set up in 2007 in Ribero Baja focusing on hunting out gnarled old garnacha vines. This young garnacha comes from old vines on alluvial gravel and clay at 380m altitude. Rich red berry fruit, soft rounded herby, balancing acidity - a fresh vibrant drinkable red with or without food.

If you’re looking for an intense, old-style Spanish wine that packs a punch, then allow me to recommend {this]. Navarra lies next to Rioja and produces wines that are similarly styled, only much better value. The Zorzal is a riot of crushed blackberries, damsons, cherries, and chocolate, with a lovely fresh raspberry finish.

A smashing price for a crunch of garnacha. It crackles with the freshness of cherry and raspberry and wooshes with acidity. The grapes grow on vines which are over 35 years old.

Navarra is a region in Spain that borders a famous neighbour - Rioja. This is a fruit-driven, aromatic, fresh garnacha with lovely red berry fruit.
