HOW TO CHOOSE THE BEST AWARDED WINE
When we choose a quality or premium wine, we look at the score it has in a reputable guide. As the word itself indicates, it will serve as our guide when choosing.
Another detail we look at is the medals he won at some of the competitions that take place in different countries around the world during the year or simply other mentions that indicate that we are buying a premium wine.
Every time a wine is awarded or has a high score in a recognized guide or is part of a list of quality wines will help us decide more easily at the time of purchase.
This may lead us to believe that award-winning wines are the most expensive, but this is not the case. In our online store you will find excellent quality wines at a more than reasonable price.
This is Senda 's case from Las Moradas de San Martín winery, a monovarietal, organic and vegan garnacha, awarded the silver medal at the Garnachas del mundo competition.
A fresh and lively wine, a garnacha from old vines, aged between forty and eighty-five, in which elegance is marked by the ten-month aging time in French oak barrels, a barrel already used many times, which gives it the serenity and subtlety of the passage of time, a premium wine in which the balance between quality and price is perfect.
We also have an excellent selection of premium rosé wines , rosé wine is often forgotten, but it is one of the most versatile wines and easy to combine with any dish, do not forget that it is always a perfect combination because it has freshness a white wine, but with the structure of a red wine, which makes it the ideal wine to start and end a meal or dinner.
In our online store we have one of those wines that we love and whose numerous awards confirm its quality, it is Valdemoya rosé , a single variety of Tempranillo grape variety with a beautiful pale pink color in which the fruits and flowers are presented to us in equal parts in the nose.
It is very aromatic and very fresh, a wine that, with its medals and the score of 94 points in the Gourmets Guide , one of the most important in our country, shows us that it is one of those wines that, whether you buy it as a a gift or to surprise your friends with a dinner party, you will always look good.
Premium wines are characterized by the fact that they are made with the best selection of grapes, often these grapes coming from the best areas of the winery.
The Parker Guide, that famous lawyer who became a wine critic and who today leads one of the most important guides in the world, always gives scores from 50 to 100, the points being always awarded according to the quality scale of each wine.
A somewhat curious system, which starts to score from number 50, but which has also been adopted by other guides such as the Spanish guide Peñín , also one of the most important.
If you go to our online store, you will find wines from PDO El Terrerazo , a protected designation of origin in the province of Valencia, created precisely to protect high quality white and red wines with the qualification of "vinos de Pago" , small properties in which the production of each of them is intended exclusively for a specific wine.
Located in Utiel, with a Mediterranean climate due to the proximity of the sea, but with very low temperatures due to the altitude, we have in our online store the best selection of wines from
Bodega Mustiguillo, of course, you have to try their white Mestizaje , is a fantastic blend of three varieties, malvasia, viognier and merseguera, the latter a native variety that gives it a very pleasant and unique herbaceous aroma, a wine that, of it also rests for eight months in tanks with its own yeasts, without losing its fruity capacity, acquiring an excellent structure and personality, hence the 92 points in the Peñín Guide , which indicates that it is a wine of a very high quality and approaching exceptional.
Another Pago wine that you can find on our website is Pago de Larrainzar , a wine produced in the region of Navarra, a blend of merlot and cabernet sauvignon that expresses the best of a territory and a low mountain vineyard in which the fruit stands out.
A fruit that complements very well with a soft tannin and well refined by the wood in the barrel, a wine whose aging gave it a temperance and complexity in shades specific to one of the best premium wines. An elegant and distinguished wine, which has won numerous awards, including one of its awards, Sakura of Japan , one of the most important and prestigious awards in Asia .
On the wine labels you will find a lot of information and if you look you will see that also attached to the bottle are usually all the prizes that the wine has won, sometimes it is curious to see how many of them have this type of wine. premium, but remember that the price of Spanish wines is the best in terms of value for money on the European market, and that quality wines are very present in our online store of premium wines.
We would also like to recommend some of the award-winning Cava wines. One of them is also present in the Guía de Vins de Catalunya , the most important guide and, as I mentioned at the beginning of the post, one of those guides that do not award points, but that people buy to know which wines have been selected in that year for their quality to appear in it.
Our first cava that appears in the guide mentioned above is Cava Brut Nature without added sugar and organic, this cava made with the three classic varieties of Penedès xarello, macabeo and parellada.
It is fifteen months old in glass, it is delicate, it has a fine bubble that rises quickly in columns to reach the surface of the glass forming a well-defined crown. Its light citrus taste makes it a fresh, fragrant and creamy cava, ideal to be consumed as such at any time of the day.
Another high quality cava I recommend is Cava Mas Tinell Brut Nature Gran Reserva 2011 , a cava that also combines the same three grape varieties, but which are selected from the best old glass vines from two fields. different with low production.
This quality detail combined with a long aging in glass in which the cava rests with its yeast, gives it a friendly, silky character.
Undoubtedly a cava to enjoy time, to enjoy the passing of the years, where the nuances of pastry flavors from yeast transport us to childhood, where the game of fine bubbles, well integrated and very present in the mouth, will make us dream , so this week we say goodbye to fasting with one of these childhood dreams, with a sweet and caramelized aroma.
