Corral de los Altos

2018

From the northernmost parcel of a single vineyard in Fitero, a rocky site located on the top of a high plateau where the “Cierzo” wind takes a key role. It is 2 hectares planted with 45 year old Garnacha. Grapes are picked early, the wine ferments from native yeasts spontaneously in 2000-liter wooden vats. Aged 9 months in used French barrels before release.

""All the guest winemakers that take part in the Lecciones de Vuelo joint venture with Viña Zorzal are o"ered to produce their interpretation of the paraje Corral de los Altos in Fitero. The 2018 Corral de los Altos is Zorzal's own interpretation of a 45-year-old plot of 2.1 hectares of Garnacha planted on a north-facing stony part of the village. The grapes fermented in stainless steel with some 25% full clusters and indigenous yeasts and matured in seven used (second and third use) 500-liter oak barrels. This has contained ripeness and a medium to full-bodied palate with the classical chalky tannins and texture from the limestone-rich soils and the length and tastiness they provide. 4,600 bottles were !lled in January 2020.""
