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.

… one of those clever roses that offers refreshment and satisfaction. Pretty as a pink picture, the nose is a blend of red summer berries and roses, while in the mouth there's plenty of crushed strawberries, red cherries and citrus. What makes it stand out is the touch of savoury black berry notes that come in at the end. Great lightly chilled on its own, this has the weight and fruit to match salmon, lamb, or even moderately spiced dishes.

Loved its bright floral notes, juicy sappy raspberry fruits and elegant dry length.

Another super Spanish rosé, on the dry side for a garnacha, with lovely floral notes and an elegant finish. Excellent value.

Spanish oenophiles should add a bottle or two of [this] to their next Wine Society order. It’s another sub-£10 must-buy Wine Society (darker) rosé. Don’t miss out. -

A bit darker than your typical Provence rosé but that’s neither here nor there. Garnacha is the Spanish name for Grenache, one of the grapes you’ll find in most Provence pinks. It’s bone dry, with an elegant floral nose and a lovely, cheeky, juicy, berry-fruited charm that just screams summer. It’s also great value from a producer that’s one of the Navarra region’s finest. -

Simple lolly pink. Smells of candy! Starts a bit sweet even though it’s not. Big, round, sweet-tasting fruit. It’s halfway between strawberry and raspberry. Exuberant to a fault! I’m just not...
Simple lolly pink. Smells of candy! Starts a bit sweet even though it’s not. Big, round, sweet-tasting fruit. It’s halfway between strawberry and raspberry. Exuberant to a fault! I’m just not sure when you would drink this but it’s certainly well made within its lights. A fresh take on Tavel?
