Vega Moragona Alta Selección Reserva 2005
The wine Vega Moragona Alta Selección Reserva 2005, of the Ribera del Júcar Denomination of Origin, now has its niche among the very best of Spain, as it has been selected to participate in the finale of the Nariz de Oro (Golden Nose) Contest to the Best Wines of Spain, which will be taking place this weekend in Madrid.
It was during the semifinals held in Barcelona in the past month of March when the wine Vega Moragona, produced by the winery La Magdalena, in Casas de Haro (Cuenca), was selected to participate in the finale of the contest, and “for the Ribera del Júcar Denomination of Origin this already represents an award in itself, as it is just like winning the championship,” states Javier Prósper, President of the Denomination of Origin, “the prestige of a contest such as the Nariz de Oro and having the opportunity to participate in the grand finale of this contest is in itself a major achievement; because we must take into account,” Prósper points out, “that none other than sixty sommeliers have tried forty-five wines in blind-tasting sessions.”
To be more specific, it was by way of the scores that the wine professionals have chosen Vega Moragona from among the best nine-month Crianza red wines. In total fifteen wines were selected in eight categories (generosos, sparkling wine, white wine, rosé wine, red wine of less than nine months Crianza, red wine of more than nine months Crianza, sweet wine and one distilled alcoholic beverage (in this case whiskies were tasted).
“To be recognized within the Catalan public, among these professionals and in such a demanding industry, is indeed an added plus for us, as this represents proof that we are doing things properly and that we can walk alongside the very best, even despite our brief trajectory.”
To be added to this satisfaction that the team making up the Ribera del Júcar Denomination of Origin already feels, is the fact that participating in the finale of the Nariz de Oro Contest to the Best Wines of Spain in the Reserva category “has even more merit,” Javier Prósper underlines, “because Reserva wines stand at the very top of the range, as they are complex wines with a multitude of nuances.”
It must also be taken into account that the Ribera del Júcar Denomination of Origin is not a newcomer in these affairs, as last year its wine Teatinos Claros de Cuba also competed against the very best wines made in the country in the finale of this contest.
Nariz de Oro Contest
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. Those chosen receive the prestigious Nariz de Oro Awards to the Best Wines of Spain.
