Review

The Viña Zorzal Malayeto is made from the fruit of old Grenache bush vines in Finca Malayeto, a 2.4 hectare plot in Fitero in the Ribera Baja region, which forms part of the Navarre appellation. Influenced by a continental climate rather than a Mediterranean one, this vineyard is one of the oldest in Navarre where vines manage to survive thanks to their roots digging deep through the stony soils to look for water. Rainfall permeates the soil and the stones help retain the heat on sunny days. The soil is also made up of chalk, clay, limestone and even volcanic basalt.

Open and expressive on the nose, Malayeto is a natural wine without fancy make-up; what we would call a true wine. Aromas of fresh fruit and almost jam-like ripe fruits, with the usual sweet background found in Grenache wines. It has hints of minerals as well as wild Mediterranean forest, balsamic, and fine wood notes. Flowery sensations of juicy and crunchy fruit, such as ripe pears, make this an extremely complete wine.

Fruity, serious, complex, and balanced on the nose; intense and quite concentrated on the palate but with an exuberance and acidity which helps the wine glide around the mouth. A fleshy and extremely well-produced wine.

Interréssant.

Il contribue à donner ses lettre de noblesse aux vins de Navarre qui ne cessent de progresser.

Eher etwas enttäuscht

Gute Nase aber sehr leichter Wein mit wenig Kraft, eher auf der sauren Seite.

Me esperaba más

Quizás mi valoración esté sesgada por mis expectativas. No tiene mucho color, es ligero, demasiado suave para mi gusto, poco glicérico, aunque su graduación apenas se nota. Aunque su precio es correcto, en relación calidad/precio para mí hay mejores.
