VEGA MORAGONA RESERVA 2005 ALTA SELECCION
Vega Moragona Alta Selección Reserva 2005, in the finals of the ‘Nariz de Oro’ (Golden Nose) Contest.
The Ribera del Júcar Protected Designation of Origin wine has been selected, at the Barcelona semi-finals, to compete in the finals of this prestigious contest .
The ‘Nariz de Oro’ (Golden Nose) contest is now reaching its final stretch and this week the fourth semi-finals have taken place in Barcelona; the idea is not simply reduced to choosing the best Sommelier –the best “Golden Nose”- in the country, but also to pay attention to wines that are starting to standout, more quality wines that will also compete in the finals of the Best Wines of Spain Contest.
Once again the Ribera del Júcar Protected Designation of Origin shines in its own light, pleasing both the most demanding of connoisseurs and the most experienced professionals and this time one of its wines will be competing in the finals, which are set to take place in Madrid in the month of June. The wine that will be competing is the Vega Moragona Alta Selección Reserva 2005, of the winery La Magdalena, in Casas de Haro (Cuenca), which has been selected from among a group of wines in order to compete in the great finale. More specifically, the contest brought together sixty sommeliers who blind-tasted a total of forty-five wines.
It was by way of the scoring that was obtained that the professionals chose Vega Moragona from among the best nine-month Crianza red wines that were presented. In total fifteen wines were selected in eight categories (generosos, (fortified wines), sparkling wines, white wines, rosé wine, red wines that has been aged for less than nine months, red wines aged for more than nine months, sweet wines and one distilled alcoholic beverage (in this case whiskies were tasted).
The Manager of the Ribera del Júcar Protected Designation of Origin, Juancho Villahermosa, who attended the Barcelona semi-finals, has declared, without hiding his tremendous satisfaction, “to be present in the finals that award the best Reserva wines is an extraordinary added plus for us; it is the culmination of all our efforts turned into a reality. All awards and recognitions are of utmost important for the team that makes up the Protected Designation of Origin”, he affirms, however, going into fine detail he also mentioned that being recognized within the professional sector of Catalonia is indeed an extraordinary achievement, “as the fact that professional wine experts not only from Catalonia, but also from Aragon, have chosen our Vega Moragona as one of the best is incredible, because participating in the finals already means being one of the best and represents a huge step forward and great recognition”.
To be added to these comments is the clarification made by Villahermosa, when he acknowledged that valuing a Reserva wine has even more merit, “because Reserva wines are the top of the line; they are complex wines, very complete wines, with a multitude of nuances”.
The Nariz de Oro (Golden Nose) Contest
After no less than six semi-finals in Gijón, Seville, Alicante, Madrid, Barcelona and San Sebastián, with more than 400 participants from around the whole country, the National Finals of the ‘Nariz de Oro’ (Golden Nose) will be taking place in Madrid on the dates of June 5th and 6th. The best sommeliers from each semi-final will compete for the award, fine-tuning their sense of smell even more than ever when confronted with the five alcoholic beverages. A jury of expert enologists will evaluate the performance of the sommeliers, finally choosing only one, the one whose sense of smell is worthy of being proclaimed the ‘Nariz de Oro 2010’ (The 2010 Golden Nose).
The jury will also be scoring the wines that will be finally chosen as the Best Wines of Spain. Three wines obtain awards every year from among the more than one hundred wines that are tasted by the sommeliers in two rounds that take place during the two days that the National Finals last. The chosen wines will receive the prestigious ‘Nariz de Oro’ Awards to the Best Wines of Spain. And this is precisely where Vega Moragona will be competing.
