Who has tried them knows that they are wines of gold and this has been evident in the Proava 2019 wine competition, which has raised as maximum winners in their respective categories Mariluna white and Pasión de Monastrell. But in addition, Mariluna red has obtained a silver medal and Pasión de Bobal rosé, a distinction, a special appointment that has not been given in any other category and that, exceptionally, has been granted this year by the proximity in the results between our wine and the third awarded.
With these great results, we have achieved that our wines are recognized in the 4 categories in which we competed: whites, rosés, reds with up to three months of barrel, and reds with barrels from 3 to 6 months The prizes will be collected during the development of the Mostra Proava, which will be held from April 25 to 29 in Valencia, and where we will have a stand in which we wait for you all and where you can taste the award-winning wines, which we present below.
Proava Gold Medal for white Mariluna in the category of white wines
Mariluna white is a very special wine, because it is made with a rare grape and n the Mediterranean area, the Verdejo, more typical of the Rueda PDO, in the provinces of Valladolid, Segovia and Ávila. In this case, our Verdejo has a personality forged in the Mediterranean, and in Mariluna it is accompanied by the Macabeo. These factors are noted in the final result of the wine, which is fresh, with notes of white flower, citrus and apricot. It has a good step by mouth, friendly, with good acidity, complex and unctuous.
