Con Malayeto, Viña Zorzal inició su línea de vinos enfocados en el terruño. Bautizado con el mismo nombre de la singular finca de la que procede, llega desde la localidad navarra de Fitero este monovarietal de Garnacha fresco, con un toque mineral y final largo.
Hamburguesa de salmón con salsa tártara
El sabor intenso y graso del salmón nos pide un tinto fluido cuya acidez y notas especiadas complementen bien al conjunto.

Opinión de los críticos
The really impressive and mineral 2018 Malayeto was produced with Garnacha from a single vineyard that produces wine of unusual elegance and minerality. This was the first plot they bottled separately, and this 2018 is the sixth vintage they have produced. It's a 2.9-hectare plot planted 40 years ago, on the same slope as Corral de los Altos but at a higher altitude and therefore with different soils, surprisingly deep but with lots of calcium carbonate and fine gravel. This fermented in a combination of stainless steel and concrete with indigenous yeasts and matured in a 4,000-liter oak foudre and nine used 500-liter oak barrels for nine months. This wine clearly transcends its price. It's serious but started quite shy and needed time to open up (it's extremely young and just bottled), but there is great purity and detail, and it's elegant and balanced, extremely harmonious. The palate is incredibly elegant, seamless, balanced, with very fine tannins, great integration of the oak and very good freshness, with citrus-like freshness (think blood orange skin). Most of the time, this is my go-to wine in Zorzal's portfolio, a wine of great finesse in its finest vintage to date. 11,300 bottles produced. It was bottled in January 2020.
