One more year the reference tasting in the European wine industry - "The World Wine Contest of Brussels" - elevates the quality of the DO Valdeorras appellation through Sousón Viñaredo, belonging to the winery of Santa Marta, with a remarkable silver medal.
The winery Santa Marta is setting trends in one of the reference wine tasting and, as usual in recent years, the 2013 edition was remarable for the Viñaredo wines, this time through Sousón, which achieved a deserved silver medal.
Sousón Viñaredo belongs to a limited production of 1800 bottles of the 2010 vintage, made with the variety Souson, typical of Galicia and very limited in its varietal form. It is obtained from strains with a minimum of 35 years and its manufacturing process is performed by a fermentative maceration at 4 ° C during 4 days and later controlled fermentation at 24 º C, followed by an ageing of eight months in oak barrels and 4 months in bottle.
Its tasting note is:
This wine appears as a bright one with dense blue and purplish red colour. Its aroma is clean and intense and the smell of red fruit stands out clearly. When first tasting it is soft and with roasted aroma. It is fresh and warm wine which appears as velvety with a correct astringent, well balanced and with a long lasting aroma after taste.
Santa Marta is a familiy winery that elaborates and produces its own wine since 1998 with one main aim: The quality of its wines must be watch on all through out the process, that is from the vine to the bottle.
Santa Marta’s vineyard is located at an altitude of 600 metres in an area where the climate is characterized by cold winters and warm summers. This vineyard is framed within a plan of integral production where the respect to vines and grapes is considered as basic for the elaboration of good wines.
On the next step, when the raw material is at the winery, all the elaboration process is done with great precision as Santa Marta has the ideal and necessary technological innovations to do so.
What we look forward to is to seek precision in each process so as to obtain the best quality wines as certified by all the prizes we have received. All Santa Marta’s wines belong to the D.O of Valdeorras.
In addition, Santa Marta has pioneered to launch one of the great delicatessen under the seal of quality of the DO Valdeorras appellation: the toasted wine Viñaredo, a product that combines ancient tradition and modernity, and of which we will talk to you soon from the mother of the wine.
