Avanteselecta wines have again been recognised at the International Wine Awards Mundus Vini that recently took place in the German municipality of Neustdat. These awards are one of the most important in the European wine sector. Torre de Golbán 2012, a Crianza that reflects the essence of Ribera del Duero, and Obalo Crianza 2011, which combines its origins in the Rioja tradition and a fresh and innovative concept, have been awarded a gold medal. Mano a Mano, made in Castilla La Mancha, and one of the highest quality wines in the area, has merited a silver medal.
The awards were decided by a jury of 150 members, from 36 countries, that tasted wines from the main winemaking areas in the world. After a strict sensory analysis, this group of experts awarded quality medals to 40% of the participating wines. These awards took place for the first time in 2001, and since then, they have been highly recognised in the wine sector, especially in central European countries.
This recognition of Avanteselecta wines adds to the great scores obtained by national and international consumer motivators. Obalo Crianza recently obtained 90 points from the internationally renowned magazine Wine Spectator, 91 from Wine Cellar and, nationally, 93 points from the 2015 Peñin Guide. In addition, it earned the Diamond award at the Vino y Mujer awards last April. Torre de Golbán Crianza 2012 has just obtained 91 points from Winespectator, and its 2011 vintage obtained 91 points from Wine Cellar and 90 points in the 2015 Peñin Guide.
