Two wines by Bodega Biniagual in Mallorca have been distinguished with Double Gold medals at the prestigious Sakura wine awards in Japan, another wine from Biniagual received a silver medal. All in all, the competition registered more than 3.500 entries from 35 countries.
The two red wines Finca Biniagual Gran Verán 2012 and Finca Biniagual Verán 2011 received Double Gold medals in the competition’s third edition with a thoroughly female jury. The rosé wine Memòries de Biniagual Rosat 2014 has been awarded with a Silver medal.
The Sakura Japan Women’s Wine Awards is an enormously relevant competition with high repercussion amongst the Japanese professional media, states the Chamber of Commerce for Spain and Japan. In this occasion, 3.543 wines coming from 35 countries -most of them from France, Italy and Spain- were tasted. 179 received Double Gold medals -two of them going to Biniagual, Mallorca-, 704 Gold and 615 Silver medals.
The fact that Biniagual’s wines have been distinguished with these important awards shows that the Japanese palate welcomes the taste of the autochthonous grape variety Manto Negro, as Finca Biniagual Gran Verán as well as Finca Biniagual Verán are made essentially of this variety, whereas the Memòries de Biniagual Rosat ist a 100% Manto Negro. As all the wines by Bodega Biniagual, they have been elaborated only with grapes coming from the winery’s own vineyards. Its production rounds 120.000 bottles per year.
