Silver Medal in Bacchus

Lagar d´Amprius Gewürztraminer 2015 (Aragon, Teruel) obtains a Silver Medal in the prestigous international wine competition Bacchus. It was the first time the winery presented its wines to this well known wine competition.

Una convocatoria que consolida su prestigio internacional con un total de 1.751 vinos inscritos procedentes de 21 países y que supone una selección mundial de referentes vinícolas que por su calidad han sido merecedores de las distinciones que otorga la Unión Española de Catadores.

It is not the first time the wines of Lagar d´Amprius receive internationally recognized awards. Last year in International Wine Guide Awards our wines Gewürztraminer 2013, Chardonnay 2014 and Garnacha 2014 obtained silver medals. And this year, the new vintage of Gewürztraminer has been awarded with Silver Medal in Bacchus. It is a great honor for Lagar d´Amprius that our work has been recognized among local and international wine experts.

Tasting notes of Gewürztraminer 2015

Lagar d’Amprius Gewürztraminer 100%. Four-years-old vineyards are specially treated in order to obtain a high-quality fruit. An extremely limited production of 1,5 kg per vine. The harvest is always done at night, trying to pick the grapes at the lowest possible temperature. This is a wine that has a positive evolution in bottle for at least 4-5 years.

¨A briliant golden yellow white wine. On the nose it is clean and it has a medium-high intensity. While young, this wine reflects fresh aromas of lychee, grape and pear, and also strong floral aromas, especially of rose and acacia, very typical of this variety. By time, we can also appreciate some hints of peach and banana, as well as aromas of green olives and rosemary. It is a very spicy wine, reminding white pepper, cardamom and cumin. A complex and well balanced wine, with medium acidity. Long aftertaste with a touch of bitterness at the end, reflecting the purity of this variety.¨, due to sommelier Raúl Igual.
