The 2019 Punto de Fuga Corral del Mate is from their joint venture with Matías Michelini from Argentina. It comes from a 0.53-hectare plot within the paraje Corral de los Altos on limestone, schist and alluvial soils and was fermented with 100% full clusters in 1,000-liter vats and matured in a used 500-liter oak barrel for 15 months.
It has the finesse of the Lecciones de Vuelo and the ripeness and depth of the Señora de las Alturas, so it's quite complete with the purity and freshness that seems to define their style, with imperceptible oak and varietal character but with great complexity and nuance. It's medium-bodied and reveals very fine, chalky tannins and terrific balance, finishing dry with the limestone sensation. A wine to convince terroir deniers... Only 660 bottles of this low-yielding vintage were filled in July 2021.

Viña Zorzal Wines, which has just celebrated its 30th anniversary, is located in the heart of Navarra's Ribera Baja region, in the centuries-old village of Corella.
Our Garnacha vineyards have unique quality factors: They are in the hills, bordered between Ebro valley and Iberian mountains: bush vines in higher altitude, continental climate and stony soiI.
The wine is the result of a clear commitment to respect our tradition with local grapes such as Garnacha, and a concern for the environment through the use of organic production techniques. This is the product of two generations of the Sanz family's profound knowledge of what their land can produce.
