Last October 29 was held the annual presentation of the prestigious Peñín Guide 2016. This time the venue chosen for the Hall of the Best Wines of Spain was the Municipal Palace of Congresses of Madrid and it was attended by about 4000 people , Mainly professionals. The event had more than 440 wines belonging to about 200 wineries in 15 autonomous communities, with more than 50 production areas represented.
With regard to our wines, one more year we can say that they are placed in the head train of the wines of Rueda in terms of quality is concerned. Our young wines achieve the best grades within their respective families if we look at wines of similar characteristics, so we can proudly say that we continue to produce one of the best collections of white wine from Rueda and Spain, according to the Peñín Guide.
The main novelty in our wines is that we have presented for the first time to the contest our semi sweet ¨Fri Sanz Te¨. This is the second vintage of this wine. It is a personal bet of the winery that saw the light back there by May 2014 and that, despite being the wine “different” from our whites, we wanted to continue in the same line of quality as the rest of dry wines from our assortment .
Our ratings are as follows:
- Sanz Clásico: 89 points
- Sanz Verdejo: 90 points
- Sanz Sauvignon: 89 points
- Fri Sanz Te: 88 points
- Finca La Colina Verdejo CIENXCIEN: 91 points
- Finca La Colina Sauvignon Blanc: 93 points
Obviously, the tastings have been made to the 2014 vintage of our wines, which we consider one of the best in recent years within the enormous regularity that our products have added after vintage year after year.
We hope to continue with this regularity in our scores in the following competitions of the Peñín Guide. A constancy over the years and vintages that we believe identifies and differentiates us.
