Citrus fruits lead the charge on this aromatic white, with notes of lemon peel, lime, and white grapefruit. There's also notes of fresh herbs, and a mineral tang reminiscent of wet stone.
Light-bodied and lively on the palate, with well-integrated and balanced acidity. Refreshing notes of lemongrass, green apple, and thyme lead to a clean, pure finish.
Naturally high acidity and herbaceous, lemony freshness make this a perfect match for asparagus risotto or raw oysters, or enjoy on its own as an aperitif.
Common in cool climate white wines, this aroma can range from fresh citrus to lemon zest.
Your windowsill herb garden gives off a lovely herbal smell every time you walk by.
From Granny Smith to Red Delicious, apple makes for a delightfully crisp aroma.
The invigorating smell of a freshly-mowed lawn before the heat of the day takes over.
Remember playing with pebbles as a child and giving them a lick out of curiosity?
2022 - 2024
Zorzal is based in Gualtallary, the highest-elevation portion of Mendoza's Uco Valley. At 1350 meters above sea level, vineyards enjoy hot, sunny days and rapidly-cooling nights, which helps grapes ripen slowly and retain their natural acidity. That acidity is so critical in white wines like this 100% Sauvignon Blanc, where it adds energy and a refreshing, citrusy zip. Hand harvested grapes are destemmed and fermented with wild yeast in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks, and the finished wine is aged for a further two months before bottling. More mineral-driven and austere than most Sauvignon Blancs from New Zealand, this example is more reminiscent of French examples of this classic grape. Serve at a well-chilled 8 C and enjoy over the next two years.
