The PDO Ribera del Júcar, Silver Medal Winner in Asia with its Teatinos 2009.
A total of 378 Spanish wines participated in the Second Contest held on the Best Spanish Wines for Asia
Teatinos 2009 a wine made by the Cooperative Purísima Concepción, which belongs to the PDO Ribera del Júcar, has obtained the Silver Medal at the Second Contest on Best Spanish Wines for Asia that took place in Hong Kong on the past dates of October 16th, 17th and 18th of 2010. This is the second consecutive year that the PDO participates in the contest, with the quality of its wines once again being awarded. Those responsible for the PDO consider that their presence at international competitions such as the Best Spanish Wines for Asia Contest “is essential in order to continue increasing our export level, which currently exceeds sixty percent of our sales”.
A total of 378 Spanish wines participated in the contest, in which the high quality of the wines that were presented is to be highlighted. From amongst the wines that received awards, fifteen percent received a Gold Medal, which clearly reveals the extremely high quality of the wines, with fifty-seven percent receiving the Silver Medal and the remaining twenty-eight percent obtaining the Bronze Medal.
The strict criteria for evaluation, the tasting groups and the absolute guarantee represented by the blind tasting sessions have given rise to results that must be very highly considered, in particular if we take into account that a total of 59 tasters (sommeliers, importers, distributors, journalists) had the opportunity to taste and rank all of the wines.
The competition itself started on October 16th following the presentation of the Contest to the members of the jury. Each wine taster was given a series of tasting score sheets with numbers that corresponded to each wine and with the wines classified into categories. The jury had to evaluate each wine over 20 points in accordance to the following criteria: visual, over 2 points; olfactory, over 7 points shared out between aromas and complexity; taste, over a total of 9 points, shared out between acidity, body, tannins, fruit and balance as well as the finish on the palate, which corresponded to a maximum of 2 points.
The awards corresponded to the average score that was obtained. Wines obtaining between 15.4 and 16 points received the Bronze Medal; between 17 and 18 the Silver Medal; between 18.5 and 19.4 the Gold Medal and those obtaining the maximum score, between 19.5 and 20 were awarded the Platinum Medal.
All the wines that received awards were again tasted during a blind tasting session on the last day, October 18th, although this time the event consisted in pairing of the wines with typical Asian cuisine dishes, with the objective behind this session residing in a confirmation of the scores, as it is not only important to have a good wine, but to also be able to pair the wine to perfection with the local cuisine is paramount.
