Description

Bodegas Emilio Moro El Zarzal 2019

Bodegas Emilio Moro El Zarzal is a vibrant Godello white wine from El Bierzo. Pale straw yellow colour. Bright and persistent aromas of flowers, white fruits (apple, pear, peach) and a very faint touch of wood. Freshness and acidity stand out on the palate, creating a surprising and balanced whole.

100% Godello. The fruit comes from vines between 15–20 years old that grow in sandy loam soils and with a continental climate influence. The vineyards are based in the best locations of the DO between Ponferrada and Molinaseca, benefitting from the excellent variety of micro terroirs that El Bierzo offers.

Hand harvesting the fruit. Fermentation at controlled temperatures in stainless steel deposits. Subsequent ageing on the lees in 2,500 litre French oak foudres.

 

AWARDS & ACCOLADES


"The 2019 El Zarzal fermented in oak at controlled temperature and matured in French 2,500-liter oak foudres with the lees. There is nice balance here and good ripeness without excess. The oak is imperceptible, and the wine is fruit-driven, primary and nicely textured, with a floral and spicy touch. It was bottled in December 2020. Best After 2021."
