Antonio Sanz started making wine in Navarra in 1989. He soon realized that good wine is not only dependent on the work done in the winery but most importantly the vines. He passed this ideology down to his sons who now help him run the vineyard. In 2007 they launched Viña Zoral. The project focuses on rescuing native Navarran grape varietals that had been forgotten about, producing single-varietal wines that celebrate and showcase the terroir.
Fresh black fruit notes envelope the glass; blackberry, black currant, and plum linger above tones of black pepper. The moderate acidity provides perfect balance against the dark fruit tones. A medium body dances with silky tannins leading to long and earthy finish with lasting notes of cedar and forest floor. Although this vintage could be happily enjoyed on its own, pair with red meat stews or cured salumi.
