Punto de Fuga Corral del Mate 2018
El proyecto de este Punto de Fuga surge de la unión navarro-argentina entre Viña Zorzal Wines y Matías Michelini. Origenes muy diferentes que comparten la pasión por los paisajes y terruños más genuinos. El resultado es un monovarietal de Garnacha cultivado en una única parcela de la que solo se embotellan dos barricas de 500 litros, lo que convierte a su producción en una creación limitada y exclusiva.

The Punto de Fuga range is a joint venture between Viña Zorzal Wines and Matías Michelini from Argentina, with the idea to produce wines from great terroirs of the world—Navarra, Tupungato (Mendoza), Bugohondo (Gredos), Cafayate (Salta), perhaps Getaria, and others... The 2018 Punto de Fuga Corral del Mate is the first in this series, a wine they consider defined by emotion, and the bottles are going to be dressed with labels that carry their true electrocardiograms! This was produced with Garnacha from the paraje El Corral de los Altos in the village of Fitero, a different plot from other wines from the same zone they bottle. This comes from 0.53 hectares, with some individual plants that have mutated to Garnacha Gris, fermented with 100% full clusters in small 1,000-liter vats and then matured in two used 500-liter oak barrels for two years. This has a different aromatic profile from the other wines from this paraje; there is an iron-like touch (blood too) that transported me to the Northern Rhône (think Côte-Rôtie), making it the wilder and more different Garnacha in the current lineup. It clearly transcends the variety. It has great balance and all the ingredients to be long-lived. It was bottled in March 2020, with 1,300 bottles produced. This wine will be distributed to distributors and importers, but others might be sold exclusively to one restaurant, as they do not want to saturate the market with many different wines, but they do want to produce them...
