Out of 175 wines registered, representing a wide range of Spain’s D.O. (“Denominación de Origien” – Origin Denomination ), only 73 wines were shortlisted and 22 medals were awareded.
The final tasting took place on the 19th of October and the prizes were awarded on the 6th of this month in Madrid.
The level of the participating wineries makes was very high, according to the experts, who were looking for a selective, distinguished and high quality product.
The winners will be able to mark their wines with the “Vinos Supremum” logo which will make them stand out and be spotted easier.
“Cenizas del Volcán” and “La Grieta Malvasía Volcánica” from the winery Malpaís de Máguez and “Yaiza Malvasía Volcánica” from Bodegas Vega de Yugo have received the highest prize, a gold medal, in the category of Young White Wines.
