A weighty yet refreshing white from the homeland of Grenache Blanc, Navarra in Northern Spain. Stylish local upstarts Zorzal have taken this grape under their wing and from it produce a ridiculous good value wine. Older bush vines in nice elevations on the border of the Ebro Valley and Iberian mountains have stony soils and a continental climate, resulting in a palpable quality and depth. With a plump, ripe texture driven by white fruit flavours and almost chalky freshness, this is a classic and versatile Spanish white for a silly price.

Garnacha Blanca (Grenache Blanc)

Its Origins

Brothers Xabier, Iñaki and Mikel Sanz started this project with a 2007 Graciano but they almost immediately focused on recovering old Garnacha vineyards in the vicinity of Fitero in southern Navarra. Viña Zorzal currently owns and grows 40 hectares, 25 of which are traditional Garnacha bush vines; the remaining land is planted with Graciano and Tempranillo, some Garnacha Blanca and Chardonnay. Wines are made at the family winery in Corella which has been renamed Viña Zorzal. Garnacha-expert and winemaker Jorge Navascués consults for them. The landscape in this subarea of DO Navarra known as Ribera Baja — encompassing the first foothills of the Sistema Ibérico mountain range— differs widely from the distinctive Ebro Valley flatlands, thus the wines show excellent freshness and vibrancy.
