We recently found out the new scores for Rioja wines awarded by Luis Gutiérrez, who is the taster of Spanish wines for Wine Advocate, the famous publication founded by Robert Parker. We add now 7 new medals obtained by our wines at the prestigious AWC Vienna International Wine Challenge.
Our Perfume de Sonsierra and Sonsierra Gran Reserva wines were a hit with the Spanish wine critic, now based in the US, who awarded them scores of 91 and 90 points, respectively.
For its part, the prestigious AWC Vienna International Wine Challenge, in which a record number of 12,826 wines from 41 different countries took part this year, has also announced its results. Seven wines from Sonsierra have won awards, with two gold medals for Sonsierra Vendimia Seleccionada 2011 and Sonsierra Crianza 2013, and five silver medals for Sonsierra Selección Tinto 2015, Sonsierra Reserva 2012, Sonsierra Blanco Fermentado en Barrica 2015, Pagos de la Sonsierra 2012 and Perfume de Sonsierra 2013.
This enviable haul of accolades is completed with the inclusion of Sonsierra Crianza 2013 in the top 3 wines of its category. The final prizes will be handed out in a ceremony on 23 October, which will be attended by our Export Manager Manuel Martínez. We very much hope he will bring home the award for the best wine in this category.
