The DO Valdeorras wines begin 2013 in the same vein as 2012: getting the highest prizes in international competitions and introducing new wines that will surely give lots of good things to talk about.
This week the weekly news of the Mother of the wine focuses on two awards presented to Adega O Cepado that, with a Gold and a Silver medals, achieves a crushing at the Catavinum World Wine & Spirits Competition 2013, that it is also completed with the presentation of the new Godello wine on lees of da Pinguela winery, "Vento".
Catavinum World Wine & Spirits Competition 2013, held last January 10, 2013, made public the results of the wines and spirits tasting of the world in its 2013 edition. For this contest, the O Cepado Winery submitted two samples: O Cepado Godello 2011 and O Cepado Mencia 2011, both awarded with medals.
CEPADO GODELLO 2011, GOLD MEDAL Catavinum World Wine & Spirits Competition 2013
CEPADO MENCIA 2011, SILVER MEDAL Catavinum World Wine & Spirits Competition 2013
The Catavinum World Wine and Spirits Competition (CWWSC) is organized and developed by Catavinum in Vitoria-Gasteiz (Spain).
During the competition, a total of 1,839 wines and spirits of more than twenty countries were tasted and, among them, the O Cepado wines shone brightly.
For its part, and as we announced last week from the Mother of the Wine, da Pinguela Winery presented its new wine "Vento".
Da Pinguela Winery, endorsed by the prestige obtained at the Salon of the Best Wines of Spain "Peñín Guide 2013", launches its new range of godello on lees.
Fermented on lees in barrel, the Godello variety grape behaves in a special way, creating complete wines. So this is "Vento", the new wine of Adega da Pinguela and submitted by the grower of the winery, Francisco Núñez, with a perfect balance between fruit and wood. "Vento" is a wine with a long life in bottle, deep and that remains longer, as the wind.
