The Concours Mondial du Bruxelles international wine competition has awarded its top prize to Sonsierra Vendimia Seleccionada 2011. The wine was chosen from amongst nearly 9,000 entries from the 52 different wine-producing countries that took part in the competition, which was held in the Bulgarian city of Plovdiv from 29 April to 1 May.
The best wines were selected on the basis of a rigorous blind tasting by the panel, which comprised 320 tasters of 54 different nationalities and included international wine-buyers, sommeliers, importers, journalists and writers from the world of wine.
Sonsierra wines sit atop the podium again on the back of three gold and four silver medals at one of the most demanding of all international events.
An international jury comprising renowned winemakers, wine experts, sommeliers, gourmets, distributors and specialised journalists has awarded seven more medals – three gold and four silver – to wines from Bodegas Sonsierra from among over 11,600 wines from 40 different countries. All wines were blind-tested under a strictly controlled tasting process.
Its elegant complexity, with balsamic notes and a certain spiciness on the nose, combined with roasted nuances and mineral intimation in the mouth, have earned the new Sonsierra Reserve 2011 the Gold Medal at the Mundus Vini International Wine Awards , which also recognised the winemakers with the Silver Medal for the Sonsierra Blanco Selección 2014.
Celebrating its 17th edition, Mundus Vini is organised by the specialist German publishing house, Meininger to promote quality and the marketing of the wines entered in the competition.
Our wines have won five new medals – two gold and three silver – at four leading international competitions.
At the Challenge International du Vin in Bordeaux, one of the most prestigious and respected wine competitions in the world, a Gold Medal was awarded to Perfume de Sonsierra 2010 and a Silver Medal to Sonsierra Selección Tinto 2014.
Sonsierra was awarded another Gold Medal at the 20th edition of the Brussels International Wine Competition, for its Sonsierra Selección Blanco 2014, which was also selected as the official wine of choice of the Regulatory Board for the Rioja PDO.
The panel at Meininger Verlag (the prestigious specialised German publisher) has included our Sonsierra Vendimia Seleccionada 2010 wine in the TOP 100 of the Best Spanish Wines at Prowein 2015 thanks to its exceptional value for money.
Fair attendees will be able to try the wine which will be on display in the free tasting area in Hall 10 / A 117 and at our stand, in Hall 10 / A 110.
