The Zorzal Eggo Malbec 2014 was featured in Decanter's top 10 exciting buys of 2016:

"A very complex, beautifully balanced blend with vibrant red – and blackcurrants combined with dark plums and a lean, mineral finish. The fruit character is extremely rich but is also bright and bouncy, exuding freshness. Refined and with lovely purity, this has great sweetness on the finish and a lifted hint of violets. Grown-up and very well done."
