Bodegas Coloma, Selección Graciano 2011 wins Silver medal in the world’s largest wine competition
Bodegas Coloma has been awarded a Silver medal in the 2014 Decanter World Wine Awards for their Coloma Selección Graciano 2011.
Coloma Garnacha Selección 2012 and Coloma Garnacha Roja 2012 were also commended and awarded with Bronze Medal.
Jancis Robinson, world famous British wine critic also recently rated these two wines as “superior” with 16.5 points out of 20 and described Garnacha Roja 2012 as:
“Dark – the colour of black cherries. Lifted, pure Garnacha character – smells ripe and spicy, peppery and warm-hearted, with dark-fruit sweetness. Lovely fruit. Very juicy, dark cherry and blackcurrant flavours, primary and bright but made more sophisticated by fine, firm, dry fruit tannins rounded out by fruit sweetness on the finish. So glad they did not obscure the fruit with oak”.
The Decanter World Wine Awards (DWWA) is the world’s largest and most influential wine competition. 2014 saw over 15,000 wines entered into the competition from 46 countries.
The DWWA has gained international admiration with a panel of over 200 world-class judging experts, including Masters of Wine, Master Sommeliers, wine writers, buyers and important members of the wine trade carefully taste their way through each of the wine entries. Each entry is tasted blind, individually discussed by the panel, and judges award the top wines with a Decanter medal.
