Sea of Dreams - Viña Zorzal (75cl)
Viña Zorzal is a highly respected producer in Navarra, Spain with a particular focus on Garnacha grapes and how it expresses itself in different terroirs. Grapes are from a north facing vineyard in Corral de Los Altos planted in 1978. As the winemaker explains: ‘We get the grapes from rocky soil, on the top of a high plateau where the northerly “cierzo” wind plays a key role adding an edge to the wine.’
Region: Navarra, Spain
Tasting notes/pairing options: On the nose, clove, black fruit, followed by soft cherry and ripe fruit aromas. The palate is very soft, full-bodied and powerful, with a long, balanced and nice aftertaste. Ideal for cured ham, stew and meat dishes.
Un-certified organic, suitable for vegans and vegetarians
The vineyard/the winemaking:
Grapes are from four plots, together totalling 5 hectares, in Corral de Los Altos. Located in the heart of Navarra's Ribera Baja region, in the ancient village of Corella. The site, planted in 1987, is at the top of a high plateau, the northerly "cierzo"wind keeps temperatures down and slows ripening. Soils are a mix of clay, sand and large limestone rich pebbles. The grapes are fermented with native yeasts in concrete tanks. Ageing is in old 500 litre French oak barrel. Bottled without fining or filtration.
We are a close family business and are currently in our second generation. We are based on our natural lavender farm, Yorkshire Lavender in the North Yorkshire countryside.
So why wine?
With a member of our staff, Timi, a trained sommelier; it seemed crazy to let that enthusiasm and experience go to waste.
Wine starts in the ground! Just like lavender the correct soil, conditions and care are vital to grow excellent grapes to make exceptional wine.
Our commitment to our natural lavender farm along with Timi’s enthusiastic expertise has led to a developing interest in natural, organic, bio-dynamic wines.
