This “salon” that took place on October the 10th, was focused only on those wines with 93 or more points in this prestigious guide. Only 160 wineries (from the more of 4.000 registered in our country) and 400 wines (from more than 10.200 tasted) had the honor of being represented at the event.
Though this means a milestone in the trajectory of our group, the real notice are the excellent results obtained by the wines of D.O.5 Hispanobodegas in this year´s guide: 11 of our wines have been rated with 90 points or more and 5 of them have exceeded 90 points. All these ratings have been obtained in the three D.O.’s that our group represents and in the different ranges commercialized, going from the “premium” ranges to the value for money ones:
– The three crianzas 2010 from Ribera del Duero: 12 Linajes, Viña Gormaz (90 points) and Catania (91 points), and also the references already mentioned Anier (94) and 12 LinajesReserva (93).
– The three wines presented form the D.O. Rueda: Anier (92 points), 12 Linajes (90 points) and Señorio de Garci Grande (90 points), all of them produced with the grape variety verdejo from the 2012 vintage.
– Three wines of our winery in La Rioja: Valdelacierva Crianza 2010 and Alfar 2011 Vendimia Seleccionada both with 90 points and this year’s novelty, Alfar white, fermented in barrel, which has obtained 91 points.
Definitely the wines of D.O. 5 Hispanobodegas are among the best wines of Spain with the added value of its excellent value per money.
