‘61’ Dorado en Rama received the German show’s highest award, the Grand Gold Medal, while Amador Diez 2015, Amador Diez 2017, and Caballito de Mar received Gold Medals, and Camino del Sur brought home a Silver Medal. La Seca, May 12, 2020.-
The Frankfurt International Trophy released the results of its 2020 edition, held in its namesake city in April, which included over 2600 wines, beers, and spirits from 39 countries.
The 271 tasting experts distinguished five of the Valladolid cooperative’s wines with several accolades at this year’s competition. The standouts were the Grand Gold Medal awarded to “61” Dorado en Rama - keeper of the Palomino grape in the Rueda Appellation - and the two Gold Medals given to the 2015 and 2017 vintages of Amador Diez, the Winery’s most artisanal and exclusive offering produced from a selection of the 10 best pre phylloxera vineyards in Segovia and Valladolid - harvested manually and elaborated in an ecological manner to favor its aging process - and bottled and labeled by hand.
The trove of accolades garnered by Cuatro Rayas at the Frankfurt International Trophy was topped off by the Gold and Silver Medals received by Verdejo wines Caballito del Mar and Camino del Sur, respectively, confirming the high caliber of wines offered in all of the La Seca’s winery’s lines.‘61’ Dorado en Rama obtains its sixth straight top honor
The Grand Gold Medal won in Frankfurt is the sixth consecutive top award marking the wine’s exceptional quality, following a Gold Medal at Bacchus, Berliner Wine Trophy, and Mundus Vinci and a 91-point rating by Parker and 94-point rating by Peñin in their most recent publications.
This sherry-style wine is produced using a blend of equal parts Verdejo - the mainstay of the Rueda Appellation- and Palomino Fino - a grape threatened by extinction from a ban on its growth - but which the La Seca cooperative sustains through century-old vines in order to preserve the area’s original products.
