Satisfaction in the Dum Jumilla Regulatory Council with the medals obtained in the Bacchus 2020 awards. Not only red wines, wines for which this historic DOP is known, the birthplace of Monastrell.
Also the rosé wine presented by the San Dionisio Winery, has risen without surprises with the recognition of being the rosé wine with the highest score in this prestigious international competition.
One more proof of the great progress that rosados â€‹â€‹process in this region, located in the Spanish southeast.
Two cooperatives and two wineries sign the Golden Bacchus.
Bodegas Alceño, who has already obtained the gold medal in the 25th DOP Jumilla Wine Quality Contest, once again achieves gold with its Alceño 50 wine, a Syrah with a slight aging in barrels that is already legendary among consumers;
a wine very present in tapas bars throughout Spain.
For its part, Bodegas BSI, stands out with an elaboration of its Gémina collection, in this case, the Cuvée Selección 2016, and receives a silver medal with another of its Géminas, elaborations that are raising the prestige of this cooperative winery, one of the largest in Spain and which groups an important group of wine growers from the Jumilla PDO.
Bodegas Silvano García, receives a gold again, as it already did in the DOP Jumilla Wine Quality Contest, and that is that this sweet wine has been receiving countless awards and recognitions such as the Arribe de Oro at the Vinduero-Vindouro Awards, or the best sweet in Spain by the Vivir el vino magazine, among its selection of 11 magnificent ones from the year 2020. This sweet wine stands out for its unique acidity and fruity palate, along with some tannins that make it ideal for both appetizers and desserts, with a differentiation of terroir and character that makes it shine with its own light.
Bodegas San Dionisio, the cooperative winery of Fuenteálamo, have reasons to be proud of their elaborations, not only for the Bacchus de Oro in its Rosado SF certified organic, but also for its young wine SF Monastrell 2019, has obtained the silver medal.
One more example that cooperatives are committed to quality, with very careful elaborations.
In the silver Bacchus,
Bodegas Alceño once again stands out with two wines, its Inédita 02, which corresponds to a limited edition of single-varietals with long aging, in this second edition, they harvest a silver with their 100% Syrah.
The one that was the most awarded winery in the last Quality Contest of the DOP Jumilla, also collects a silver with its Alceño Dulce 2016 wine, an enological wonder that this time if it involves passing through the barrel, and adds a total of 3 medals to this cellar.
Other wines with a silver medal, Bodegas Carchelo with its Altico crianza 2015, a 100% Syrah wine, Bodegas Delampa with its Delampa 50th anniversary 2016 Monastrell, and the Paco Mulero twenty months 2017 Monastrell, demonstrate the good elaborations in passing through wood that are they do in the Jumilla PDO.
However, young wines also stand out, with Ribera del Juá selected by Monastrell 2018 and Creencia con Juventud by Hammeken Cellars, both with elaborations that clearly show the special character of the Monastrell that is born in the Jumilla PDO.
The Prestigious Bacchus Contest that held its XVII edition, closed with a good taste in the mouth for DOP Jumilla.
The tasters convened by the Spanish Union of Tasters were able to attend a masterful tasting offered by the Master of Wine Heidi MÃ¤kinen, Wine Ambassador Vinitie, and Advanced Sommelier by the Court of Masters Sommelier, in which he explained the qualities of this historic DOP and its differentiation .
From its altitude and mountainous systems that help the survival in extreme rain-fed climates and free-standing (pre-phylloxeral) strains of the queen grape variety: the Monastrell.
The altitude of the area, its soils, weather, and the tradition of glass cultivation are key factors in the uniqueness of the Jumilla PDO, and in the good acidity and balance of its wines.
