El Zarzal 2018
El Zarzal abre la gama de Emilio Moro en El Bierzo con el objetivo de respetar la identidad de la variedad sin renunciar a la frescura. Aquí la Godello nace en viñedos con exposiciones más umbrías donde la fruta se mantiene fresca y la acidez equilibrada. La fermentación en madera, con una posterior crianza sobre lías, en fudres, le da redondez final a las virtudes de la Godello berciana.

Opinión de los críticos
Even if they are not quite from the Duero zone but from Bierzo, I also tasted their whites produced with Godello grapes, including the 2018 El Zarzal, which has 13% alcohol, very good acidity and low pH. It was produced with fruit from vines averaging 15 years of age, and it fermented in oak at controlled temperature. It matured in French 2,500-liter oak foudres with lees for eight months. It's expressive and aromatic, with some grape-pulp aromas, somehow floral and with a spicy touch. It's varietal and clean, with integrated oak, a medium-bodied palate and a refreshing finish, serious and with a mineral twist. 8,200 bottles were filled in October 2018, but there will be a total of 42,000 bottles, as they will do two bottlings.
