"The 2019 Gran Terroir Pinot Noir feels a little riper and wider, with darker fruit and some more rusticity. It seems to have more texture and concentration, as it's a wine that was going to be aged in barrel for 12 months. The palate shows more austerity and the chalkiness from Gualtallary. 22,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in August 2020."

"Sweet cherry and berry aromas and flavors with some chocolate and hazelnut. Its medium-bodied with creamy tannins and a delicious finish. Subtle and fresh. Drink now."

The Estate
Zorzal is a young, boutique winery that was founded in 2007 by the Michelini brothers, Gerardo, Matias, and Juan Pablo (Juampi). They completed their first vintage in 2008. The winery and vineyards are located in a section of the Uco Valley called Gualtallary (Gualta), outside the town of Tupungato, at approximately 4,500 feet above sea level. The Zorzal winery is the highest winery in Mendoza. The estate consists of 70 hectares on a unique blend of sand, stones, and limestone and is planted to multiple varieties including Malbec, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, and a few others. The grapes are all hand harvested and Juampis vision is to have a light hand in the winemaking to let the fruit and terroir shine. The winery practices organic methods in the vineyards and uses only indigenous yeast in the winemaking process.

Zorzal tends to pick its grapes a little earlier than most in Mendoza to retain freshness and acidity in their wines instead of the overblown ripeness that is too often seen. They are already considered to be a rising star in Argentina with their focused wines and enticing expression of multiple varieties above and beyond their stunning Malbecs. They also make a series of wines called EGGO, consisting of Malbec, Cabernet Franc, Sauvignon Blanc, and Pinot Noir completely fermented and aged in large concrete eggs. The EGGO wines are more limited in production.
