Viña Zorzal, 'Chardonnay', 2019, Navarra DO, Spain


This is a really accomplished modern dry Chardonnay. Something to challenge the ABC'ers out there. Stainless steel use, and no oak ageing, leads to a very vibrant pure, peachy, floral and elegant style of Chardonnay with a crisp delicious finish. This has a touch of silkiness on the palate and rounds off chicken or white seafood dishes perfectly.

Lying in the south of Navarra, Viña Zorzal is a project run by three brothers who inherited the estate from their parents. Their signature is a bright and juicy Garnacha Joven, packed with red fruits and great freshness. They're also making some impressive single vineyard wines from old vines which seriously over-deliver for the price. A project to watch.
