Fifth consecutive ‘Gold’ for ‘61’ Dorado en Rama from Bodega Cuatro Rayas

The fortified wine of the cooperative from Valladolid won a Gold Bacchus, thus becoming the fifth consecutive recognition to its exceptional quality after receiving the same award at the BWT and Mundus Vini and scoring 91 Parker points and 94 Peñín points in their latest publications.

La Seca, 13 March 2020.- The Spanish Association of Sommeliers has published the list of winners of the 18th edition of the Bacchus Awards—the only international wine contest recognised by the International Organisation of Vine and Wine—, awarding a Gold medal to Oro a ‘61’ Dorado en Rama from Bodega Cuatro Rayas.

        The fortified white wine of the winery remains unstoppable after receiving outstanding scores in all the competitions to which has been submitted to date. In the last weeks, it has been awarded two gold medals, at 2020 editions of Berliner Wine Trophy and the international Mundus Vini. Also, it received high scores in the latest publications of the wine experts Parker and Peñín: The Wine Advocate magazine gave 91 points to this unfiltered wine, and the Spanish Peñín Guide scored it 94 points in its latest edition.

        In addition to the Gold Bacchus of ‘61‘ Dorado en Rama, Bodega Cuatro Rayas has managed to place Cuatro Rayas Vendimia Nocturna Sauvignon 2019 among the winners, with a Silver medal awarded to this varietal wine from the most popular range of the winery.

A unique wine that brings out the best of the Palomino variety at DO Rueda
‘61’ Dorado en Rama is produced with equal parts Verdejo variety, the most characteristic of the designation of Origin Rueda, and Palomino Fino, a varietal doomed to disappear since its cultivation is forbidden. However, the cooperative from La Seca is taking good care of its century-old vines to continue producing the original wines of the region.

         This wine is aged in twelve plus one sixty-years-old barrels, using the traditional solera system and goes from the butts to the bottle without filtering in a single annual saca (taking out). Lightly toasted, with nuts and ripe fruit hints, this sensory gem keeps conquering the palates of the most demanding wine tasters.
