The winery will receive the recognition of Japanese consumers.
On the 29th and 30th of January 2019 the 6th edition of the “Sakura” Japan Women’s Wine Awards took place in Tokyo, the most important wine competition in Japan. This contest involves a total of 4500 wines from 33 countries and is peculiar in that it is carried out exclusively by women linked to the wine sector. Its judges comprise wine specialists, renowned sommeliers, winemakers, oenology teachers, journalists, hotel beverage managers, retail managers, importers and distributors.
Through a blind tasting carried out by the judges, the wines that are judged by Japanese women to be better in terms of pairing with Japanese cuisine are set apart, as well as those that are good value for money and are also more attractive to Japanese consumers and buyers.
The contest has three main objectives: Help the consumer decide on a wine to pair with Japanese cuisine, increase the annual wine consumption per person and increase the chances of integrating women in the wine sector.
Once again, our wines have obtained great results in this contest. In addition to the DOUBLE GOLD medal obtained by NEBLA VERDEJO, we have been awarded the GOLD medal for the following wines: Hoya de Cadenas Reserva, Ceremonia Bobal, Sandara Blanco and Castillo de Liria Brut.
NEBLA VERDEJO expresses the freshness and joviality of the dawn after a night of harvest. This perfect and unique blend between the cold of the night and the morning sun, result in this 100% Verdejo single-varietal fruit with great expressiveness and a fresh palate. After controlling the ripening, the night harvest is carried out in September to take advantage of the cool temperatures that help to preserve the aromas. A light cold maceration is carried out to enhance the aromatic intensity of the must, before its controlled fermentation at low temperatures for a period of 18 days.
