Professional Reviews

Robert Parker

RP 92
"Via Zorzal has produced a 2019 Nat'Cool with Matas Michelini from Graciano grapes, a classical but scarce grape found mostly in Navarra and Rioja from a super healthy vintage, with enough rain and mild weather during harvest time. This is 11.84 alcohol, quite low and with healthy acidity (low pH and notable reading in tartaric acid per liter), so the grapes were picked early, destemmed and fermented in concrete and stainless steel with indigenous yeasts. It was kept in concrete (topped up with a little Garnacha) until bottling in March 2020. It's so obviously young and primary, with a bright, translucent purple color and a fruit-driven nose, with great freshness and perfume, with an herbal twist. It's not terribly complex, but it's super-pleasant and gulpable, solid, balanced and fresh, really easy to drink. The world needs more wines like this! 3,000 one-liter bottles (as per the rules) produced."

What Bowler Wine has to say about this wine...

The high-acid Graciano is the last one of their grapes to be harvested, in their vineyards around the village of Corella. Following a light maceration the wine ferments in steel. 25% of the wine is racked into French oak for malolactic, the rest happens in steel. The wines were blended and stayed 9 months on their lees in French barrels.
